The discovery of America expression is commonly used to refer to the arrival in America of a Spanish expeditionary group, representing the Catholic Monarchs, departed from the port of Palos, commanded by Christopher Columbus, and arrived on Friday October 12, 1492 to an island called Guanahani. Christopher Columbus believed he had reached Asia, called by Europeans Indies and died without knowing he had reached a continent unknown to Europeans. It is now one of the summits of world history because it meant the meeting of two worlds that humans had developed independently, without one knew the other's existence. The consequences of this encounter between two worlds were dramatic for Native Americans, the deaths of millions of people (war, slavery, and above all, diseases) and the disappearance of cultures.
