The Portuguese carried out some of the greatest voyages of exploration and discovery in history and as a result Portugal became one of the richest nations in the world from the mid 15th century to the late 16th century.
The Portuguese were the first Europeans to :
Sail down the coast of West Africa
Discover Madeira and the Azores and Cape Verde Islands
To round (and name) the Cape of Good Hope (Cabo da boa Esperança)- Bartholomew Dias
To reach India by sea from the west - Vasco da Gama
The first to trade with China and Japan
The first to see Australia (200 years before Capt. Cook)
The first to discover South America and Brazil - Cabal. He had probably been blown off course whilst travelling down the Atlantic on route for the Orient.
The first to settle Newfoundland and discover the Great Banks (Fegundes)
All these discoveries took place between 1419 and 1500 and were made possible because of the development of the Portuguese vessel, the Caravel, and of navigational techniques under Henry the Navigator's influence at his famous School of Navigation at Sagres.
