DESCRIPCIÓN

Around 1869, Spain, surprised that Colombia had not yet established diplomatic or commercial relations with the peninsula, appointed José María Gutiérrez de Alba, a cultured Andalusian poet, playwright and cartoonist, to find out the reason. The emissary, who fully integrated into the life of the capital, toured the country and recorded his impressions in texts and in more than 350 watercolors, which in 1991 Benjamín Villegas managed to acquire, recovering this valuable testimony for the country. The book, which includes all reproductions of the original, interspersed with consecutive extracts from his diary, "is the legacy of a restless man, a curious intellectual, who looked at our country with eyes of wonder and affection..." as President Juan Manuel Santos comments in his preface to this work.
