Vasco da Gama and the discovery of the maritime route to India. The portuguese explorer sailed from Lisbon on July 8th 1497, arriving to the Malabar Coast -in Southwest India- on May 20th 1498 and returning to Portugal on August 1499. The consequences of the discovery of this route were extremely significant, since they gave to Europe, a route for the trade of spices and other products from the Far East without having to go through the hostile lands of the Ottoman Empire in Northern Africa.
