This work describes the voyage of the Spanish naval mission to Turkey in 1784-1785, pursuant to the peace treaty between Spain and the Ottoman Empire which established freedom of trade, the opening of consulates and the exchanges of slaves. Moreno was not a member of the mission but wrote up the text from the material compiled by Don Gabriel de Aristizábal, commander of the Spanish fleet. Although Moreno did not accompany the mission to Constantinople, he was present on a later Spanish mission to Syria in 1788, which also stopped in Cyprus, described in the Appendix.
