Portuguese Trading Route to Nagasaki

By 1571, a string of Portuguese naval outposts connected Lisbon to Nagasaki along the coasts of Africa, the Middle East, India and South Asia. This commercial network brought great wealth to Portugal.

Have a look at this Portuguese trading route. Not many people know this, but it was the Portuguese who founded Nagasaki as a major international trading port. [Source: Wikipedia.org]

Take a guess how long this journey across the oceans took in the 16th Century?
