Abstract From the middle of the 16th century, and after the incorporation of the Philippines to the crown of Spain, the Spanish empire was based on two naval lines: the one that crossed the Atlantic (Flota de Indias) and the one that linked the western coast of Mexico with the Philippines (Galeón de Manila). The link between both lines was made by land through Mexico, and was called Camino de Asia. It was a journey of more than 600 kilometers from the Atlantic port of Veracruz to the Pacific port of Acapulco. For two and a half centuries, this axis welcomed an incessant flow of travelers and merchants, and was used by religious orders to promote their expansion to Asia from Europe. In this article we focus on the heritage of the Society of Jesus in the 16th and 17th centuries on the Camino de Asia through the narration of the Spanish Jesuit Manuel de Solórzano (1649- 1684). Three letters sent by him from Mexico are included as an annex to this work. © 2023 Lavoisier. All rights reserved.
