Your tour route

Our Beginnings:When Christopher Columbus discovered the New World in 1492, he also discovered its delicious new fruits and vegetables. He brought the new foods back to Europe, and the Europeans began to plant them in Europe. When Columbus sailed back to the Americas, he brought some of Europe's native fruits, vegetables, and animals. The natives and settlers of the New World began planting and breeding these foods and animals in the New World. This trade of the food and animals from the New World to the Old was named the Columbian Exchange. Columbian Exchange drastically changed how people lived then, and greatly influenced our lives today.
