The Life of

Vasco da Gama:
Ho Aimjrte d V.


This site is dedicated to life and death of Vasco da Gama. From this site you can learn about Vasco's discovery of a water route from Europe to India, which opened up a "Whole New World" (hence the background song(you can stop this song by pressing the stop button on your browser window)) for European economy. You can also gain other useful information about Vasco, his crew, and his family from this page. The journal entries are not from da Gama's journal, so please do not cite them as primary sources, the journal has been created by me using the knowledge I have gained by studying the life of Vasco da Gama.
