Excerpt:

 

In February 1493, a little known incident occurred in the Azores that placed Columbus's life in jeopardy. On his first homeward voyages from America Columbus made two unscheduled stops in Portuguese territory before returning to his home port in Spain. The first was on Santa Maria in the Azores, the other in Lisbon. The latter has been  extensively written about but there was little information about the first stop, where Columbus sent a landing party that was kidnapped, requiring considerable diplomacy on his part for them to be freed.
