One of the most significant dates during the reign of the Catholic kings was that of October 12th 1492: the day that Christopher Columbus discovered America. The fact that Christopher Columbus (who was not of Spanish origin) had come to a foreign court to offer his services proves that the discovery of America was not at all an accident. Portugal and Castile (Spain) were very advanced in the exploration of maritime mercantile routes, and Seville, a rich and populous Spanish city, was by then an important commercial center.
