This article analyzes the change in the geographic valley of Cauca river landscape between 1870 and 1950, from genealogic point of view, considering it around the present problems. First, a reconstruction of landscape is done, considering the perception of regional writers of the ninetieth and twentieth centuries. After, it is shown how the landscape exuberance is transformed in a dessert.
