          Abstract

          Resumo Nos tempos coloniais, o caminho que unia a cidade do México com o porto atlântico de Veracruz formava parte essencial da malha viária que conectava as diversas partes do vice-reino da Nova Espanha entre si e com o mundo. A rota, pela qual transitavam os passageiros e as mercadorias que iam e voltavam da Espanha, havia sido consagrada nos episódios da conquista realizada por Hernán Cortés, e possuía, além do valor comercial, um profundo significado simbólico que se atualizava nas cerimônias oficiais (como, por exemplo, em cada chegada dos novos vice-reis) que serviam para fortalecer e confirmar o pacto colonial com a metrópole. Entre os séculos XVI e XVIII, o caminho foi objeto de vasta literatura de caráter técnico, circunstancial e histórico, cujos principais exemplos serão abordados nesse ensaio.

          Abstract In colonial times, the route linking Mexico City with the Atlantic port of Veracruz formed an essential part of the road network that connected the various parts of the Viceroyalty of New Spain with the rest of the world. The route, through which the passengers and the goods went back and forth from Spain, had been consecrated in the episodes of the conquest made by Hernán Cortés, and had, besides its commercial value, a deep symbolic meaning that was updated in the lavish official ceremonies (for example, on each arrival of the new viceroys) that served to strengthen and confirm the colonial pact with the metropolis. Between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries, the road was the object of a vast literature of technical, circumstantial and historical character, whose main examples will be discussed in this essay.
