      The Hispanic and Portuguese World ENCOUNTERS IN AMERICA In October Christopher Columbus and his crew reached the Bahamas. From that time forward Europeans and the people living in the continents of the Western Hemisphere now known to us as the Americas, North and South, came into permanent contact.   Maps by Ptolemy, Mauro and Cresques and traditional sailors’ charts all contributed to what Columbus would call La Empresa de las Indias, the Enterprise of the Indies.
