BENITES, María Jesús. The damned limit: travelers to the Strait of Magellan (XVIth century). Rev. Pilquen [online]. 2008, n.10. ISSN 1851-3123.

The "MagellanStrait" was the most far and inhospitable place of the New World, during the Spanish colonization process. In this paper I study a corpus wrote by those who participated or commanded three expeditions: Fernando de Magallanes (1519), Juan de Ladrillero (1557) and Pedro Sarmiento de Gamboa (1579 and 1581).

Keywords : Magellan Straight; XVI the Century; Colonization; Travel stories; Geographical space.
