PRADO, Fabrício Pereira. Colônia do Sacramento: a situação na fronteira platina no século XVIII. Horiz. antropol. [online]. 2003, vol.9, n.19, pp.79-104. ISSN 0104-7183.

The Sacramento Colony, currently Uruguayan territory, in the first half of the XVIII century, was a city with great commerce on the River Plate Region. Placed in both Portuguese and Spanish social and commercial routes, the Sacramento habitants formed a multiple frontier where Spanish, Portuguese and different indigenous groups coexisted. The present study analyses the social and commercial links that existed between the Sacramento and Buenos Aires inhabitants. In the River Plate region, the social networks developed connecting Sacramento and Buenos Ayers were gateways to social status, power and wealth in an old regime society.

Keywords : Colônia do Sacramento; frontier; Río de la Plata; social networks.
