Resumen:
One of the regions of South America most affected by swelling and  flood is Northeast Argentina, an area that, from a hydrological perspective, forms part of the vast De La Plata River Basin.  It includes the provinces of Misiones, Formosa, Chaco, Corrientes, Entre Ríos and Santa Fe, located on both shores of the Parana River below its confluence with the Paraguay River. Given the insufficient number of historical studies from this perspective of the area known as the Argentine littoral, the objective of this study is to identify the most relevant floods of the Parana River in the Río De La Plata Basin between the sixteenth and eighteenth centuries in archival documents, in order to study their material, economic, social and sanitary consequences on the Spanish and native populations involved.  Special importance is given to the strategies both Spanish and indigenous people developed to confront and solve the problems presented by these floods.
