It is, by its contents, layout and history, a Pintoresco (Picturesque) and Universal Spanish magazine that shows the transition between two conceptual models of periodicals that were published in Spain between 1836 and 1849. The magazine offers the exposition of the local that was represented in the picturesque press and the opening to international of universal journals.
