Depending on which side you look at it, the history of the conquest of the Americas has been perceived by some historians as a bloody event that brought destruction and misery to the lands of North and South America. From another point of view, the encounter of the two worlds meant a transformation at all levels that certainly created the new identity of the North and South Americans. This brought with it positive elements such as the discovery of the other part of the globe, miscegenation and cultural exchange.

The conquest was carried out by the great European nations of the time, which already needed to expand economically, due to demographic, geographic and political factors. Spain, Portugal, England and France were the main participants in this journey. The first to set foot on American soil was Christopher Columbus, who was amazed by the impressive beauty and wealth of the first islands discovered.

The colonial period was marked by the imposition of the language, religion and economic and social dynamics of European countries. Some territories suffered the extermination of indigenous peoples and also the forced occupation of Africans brought as slaves.
