The story begins on March 9, 1500, when the fleet of Pedro Álvares Cabral left Lisbon for the Indies. An animated map shows the route followed by the fleet, passing through the Canary Islands, Cape Verde and São Nicolau. The night of the following day, the ship of Vasco de Ataíde was lost. The Portuguese continue their journey through unknown waters until between April 21 and 22 discover signs of land and see the mountain Pascoal, on the Brazilian coast. When surveying the place they make contact with the local natives, called Indians, and take two to meet the Cabral. The meetings are friendly and the Indians help the crew to restore their provisions and barrels of water. At the end, there is the great celebration of the First Mass in Brazil with the participation of all crew members and large numbers of natives.
