Portugal and Spain were well-advanced in the exploration of overseas routes and
Sevilla, a wealthy Spanish city, was by then an important commercial centre.
We know that the African routes were closed to Spain in favour of Portugal. In 1479,
Alfonso V of Portugal recognized the rights of Spain over the Canary Islands, while
Spain recognized the rights of Portugal over the Azores, Cape Verde and Madeira.

possessed in 1492 a powerful war machine, a solid economy, naval experience
including the exploration of trade routes and notable scientific-technical potential,
mathematicians, geographers, astronomers and shipbuilders who had been formed
in a melting-pot of three cultures: Jews, Muslims and Christians. Its only rival was its
neighbour, Portugal, which, as we know, had put a stop to Spanish expansion
in Africa.
Columbus’ offer was rapidly accepted, but during his journey to Asia his caravels
unexpectedly came across the American continent.
The Spanish were especially well prepared by history to conquer, occupy,
populate and exploit new lands and assimilate new people. America thus became the
new frontier-land for those people used to its ways and with the military, diplomats
and administrative arms at their disposal to face the challenge. By the middle of the
16th century, they had settled in the two most important places, Mexico on the
Atlantic, and Peru on the Pacific.
