Las visitas gubernamentales en Chile, 1788-1861
Sagredo Baeza, rafael
This work analizes the tours though Chile made by government officials between 1788 and 1853 and the plans for presidential visits from 1843 to 1861. The purpose of these visits, originally designed to improve administration and provide better goverment, gradually evolved towards over political objectives. These tours can be seen as historical precedents for the trips along the country made by José Manuel Balmaceda as from 1883.
