The history of Nuevos Bordeaux is the story of a failed attempt, but at the same time it opens windows to a 19th century and to a Paraguay that is more interconnected than is usually recognized . It allows you to start tours of family histories, of surnames that remain to this day or of towns forced to move to the west, far from the rivers.
The work of Luc Capdevila and Guido Rodríguez Alcalá penetrates these worlds and, especially, that of the French consul, through their official correspondence. Their desires and frustrations run parallel to those of the Paraguayan government, those of the inhabitants of Nueva Bordeaux and those who watched from outside.
