Manuel Mujica Lainez was a prolific writer whose work spanned for more than fifty years. Even though he is better known for his novels and short stories, he has also dedicated his efforts to other genres, for example travel chronicles. This research, which is inserted in a line of work already begun in previous studies, proposes to study the travel chronicles written by the author in 1935 and 1945 when visiting Germany. The chronicles put into tension aspects related to the circumstances of production of each series, its context of publication, the writer's ideology, and his aesthetic interests. In addition to this, it is interesting to consider the reasons that could have taken the author to exclude most of these texts from the anthology he published before passing and the way in which some of these anecdotes are introduced in Cecil (1972).
