Christopher Columbus was born in Genoa, Italy.[2] He eventually resided in Spain, and became a sailor and completed four voyages across the Atlantic Ocean which led to Europe's general awareness of the existence of the American continents. It was his travels to the Americas that led to the Spanish colonization, and eventually the colonization of all of Europe.
