  • Camino Real "Camino Real de Tierra Adentro was the Royal Inland Road, also known as the Silver Route. The inscribed property consists of 55 sites and five existing World Heritage sites lying along a 1400 km section of this 2600 km route, that extends north from Mexico City to Texas and New Mexico, United States of America. The route was actively used as a trade route for 300 years, from the mid-16th to the 19th centuries, mainly for transporting silver extracted from the mines of Zacatecas, Guanajuato and San Luis Potosí, and mercury imported from Europe."
  • Panamá "Durante su historia desde el siglo XVI hasta el siglo XIX, el Camino Real fue, junto con el Camino de Cruces, una de las dos únicas rutas para cruzar el Istmo de Panamá. El camino, creado poco despues del descubrimiento del Mar del Sur, conectaba la ciudad de Panamá Viejo primero con Nombre de Dios y despues de 1597 con Portobelo" Link

  • Qhapaq Ñan " In the colonial period, the Spaniards began to administer the existing roads and ordered the creation of new roads to link the main administrative centres of the Viceroyalty of Peru and (later on) of the Viceroyalty of New Granada. In the Northern Andes, Qhapaq Nan was called Camino Real, and was connected to other roads to link the capital of the Royal Audience of Quito to Santa Fe de Bogotá, capital of the Viceroyalty of New Granada" and "This road, known as the Camino Real connected Cusco with the city of La Paz. Fernando de Matienzo, in his work titled Ancient Memoires of the History and Politics of Peru ([1567] 1967), makes reference to the existence of the Camino Real which started at Cusco and went all the way to Charcas" (both from Nom File)
