DISCOVERY OF AMERICA
On October 12th, 1492 Cristobal Colon discovered America.
New World discovery united Incan, Mayan and Aztec Cultures knowledge with the ones of the Old World. The first botanic gardens were established in Seville and new plants and knowledge from America was distributed around Europe.
The first study of America’s contribution to medicine was written by Nicolas Monades
For centuries, galleons returned to Spain packed with roots, herbs and fruits which doctors were anxiously waiting for in order to add to their therapeutic arsenal.
