Scholars believe that Columbus developed his plan to sail to the “Indies” sometime during his sojourn in Portugal. But historians simply do not know how the idea came to him. Some argue that the plan came from intuition, others that he formulated it from reading and study. Still others have concluded that Columbus used maps and written sources only to support his conclusions.
