Taking as research sources the travel books and the campaigns of colonization and exploration of the territory, we will analyze the descriptions on landscape made by travelers and explorers of the territories not actually occupied by the Chilean State between the 1830s and 1880s. Considering definitions of cultural landscape, we will identify the role played by the Indians in the conformation of this landscape in the opinion of those who observed them. Starting from the subjectivity of those who represent the landscape in their writings, the social and intellectual group to which they belong and their capacity for influence, we will analyze their assessments and their projections according to the archetype of landscape that is conforming from the eighteenth century with the agricultural revolution, which they contributed to consolidate and spread from their opinions and writings. Finally, we will consider their descriptions as actors of the change that underwent the landscape during the process of occupation of the territory.
