Cape Route

The Cape Route corresponds to a commercial route created by the Portuguese after Vasco da Gama discovered the sea route to India in 1498. Through this route, the Portuguese transported from the East to Europe the famous oriental spices. The large quantities that could be transported by sea and the lower transportation costs allowed the Portuguese to practice prices much lower than the prices practiced by the Muslim, Turkish and Venetian merchants who exploited this trade through the Levante Routes and the Caravaneiras Routes.
