Abstract:Until the end of the fourteenth century, contact between West Africa and the outside world was through the Sahara Desert and the peoples of North Africa. But from the opening decades of the fifteenth century, the Portuguese established relations with West Africa through the coast of Guinea. This new relationship brought with it new ideas and influences. This paper assesses the extent of this Portuguese impact on West Africa, after outlining the main aims of the Portuguese for undertaking the exploration of West Africa and briefly examining their activities on the West Coast.
