The names of the 1497 Vasco da Gama Ships were the Sao Gabriel, the Sao Rafael and the Berrio. The brave men of the fifteenth and sixteenth centuries who sailed in uncharted waters to unknown lands were courageous adventurers who were motivated by fame, glory and the wealth. The living conditions on board the small ships were basic and the voyages were dangerous.
