THE ORDINANCES OF VACA DE CASTRO – 1543
Th e objective of this text is to go through the royal roads according to the Ordenanzas de Tambos made by Cristóbal Vaca de Castro. In order to locate the Tambos in the contemporary map it was necessary to search them one by one taking into consideration the distances between them. In some cases, these tambos have become towns, even cities but in other cases given the changes of the routes have been abandoned. Another objective of this article was to draw attention to the exploitation of the indigenous people. Described ordinances can be considered as fi rst regulations of the workforce and fi rst in the fi ght against the extortion of the natives.
