COELLO, Óscar. Miguel de Estete: along the Incas’ Qhapaq Ñan and the fine suspension bridges. Bol. Acad. peru. leng. [online]. 2022, n.71, pp.11-37.  Epub June 23, 2022. ISSN 0567-6002.

This paper studies one of the most important texts which marks the beginning of Spanish prose in Peru: the story of Miguel de Estete in pursuit of the greatest sanctuary of the South Sea, Pachacamac. At a time when history was a literary genre, this work examines the artistic places of the narrative discourse of this singular writer. Undoubtedly, his text was the first detailed vision of the splendor of the Andean country and its highly developed culture.

Keywords : Peru; Sixteenth century; Miguel de Estete; Pachacamac.
