LACOSTE, Pablo. The Pehuenche Pass and its contribution to regional development. Universum [online]. 2018, vol.33, n.1, pp.144-163. ISSN 0718-2376.

The historical evolution of the Pehuenche Pass in its first two centuries of history (XVII-XIX) is examined. On the one hand, the constant will of the indigenous and mestizo peoples is detected by April the way to establish economic, social and cultural links on both sides of the mountain range. On the other hand, the tendency of the authorities to restrict the road through political-administrative measures is perceived. Despite the official resistance, these groups promoted the circulation of goods and people through the Pehuenche Pass, thereby activating the regional economy and strengthening the food and artisan heritage. To the study a bibliographical revision of the subject is made and with new readings of documents of the time, mainly the judgment to the malon of 1658.

Keywords : Bioceanic corridors; trans-Andean roads; regional integration; regional economic development; food heritage.
