Vasco da Gama (1460-1524). Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama. Da Gama is most famous for setting up a trade route between India and Europe, which opened up the Indian subcontinent to European commerce. In 1497, Da Gama was sent by Prince Manuel of Portugal to find this trade route to India. He succeeded in sailing the length of Africa, and rounded the Cape of Good Hope four months after setting off. In spring 1498 he arrived in India, and in doing so helped make Portugal a world power.
