Cubero, Pedro

Cubero, Pedro a Spanish missionary and traveller, was born in 1645, near Calatayud, in Aragon. He commenced his travels at the age of twenty-five, going from Saragossa to Paris, afterwards visited Rome, Venice, Vienna, Constantinople, Warsaw, Moscow, Astrakhan, Kasbin, Ispahan, Shiraz, Laar, Snrat, Goa, Malacca, Manilla, and Mexico, returning to Europe after a nine years' absence, and published an account of his missions in Spanish (Madrid, 1680; Saragossa, 1688). Cubero was the first traveller who made the tour of the world from west to east, and in part by land. His work gives a detailed account of the steppes of Astrakhan, of the deserts of Persia, and of Manilla. See Hoefer, Nouv. Biog. Generale, s.v.; Biog. Universelle, s.v.
