rewards?
Vasco Da Gama was a Portuguese explorer from the 15th century. He was one of the most successful explorers from the 'Age of Discovery' and was the commander of the first ships to sail directly from Europe to India.
The fact that he reached India by sea meant that the Portuguese won't have to cross the highly-disputed Mediterranean Sea and the dangerous Arabia to get to India.

His discovery paved a
way for the
Portuguese to
establish a long-lasting
colony inside India.

Vasco Da Gama crossed 6,000 miles of ocean, and Monbasa (where he met pirates) , Malindi, and Calicut, India.

Vasco left Calicut on the 29th of August, 1498. Ignoring the local knowledge of the patterns of the monsoon winds.

Sailing against the wind, the journey became three times as long.

They finally arrived in Malindi at 7th of January, 1499, with the ship in a awful shape. Half of the sailors died during the crossing, mostly with scurvy.


Vasco brought back cinnamon and pepper, silk and jewels, and together with some Indian hostages. He was rewarded the town of Sines. He was also rewarded with 300,000 reis.
