João Serrão, also known as Juan Serrano in the Spanish version, (Kingdom of Portugal, ? - Cebu, 1521) was a 16th-century Portuguese navigator who sailed with Ferdinand Magellan during the first circumnavigation of the world (1519-1521).
Captain of the ship Santiago, Serrão was involved in the events that led to a massacre on Cebu allegedly instigated by Enrique of Malacca, but we cannot ascertained this by Antonio Pigafetta's accounts alone.
