Resumen:
This article analyzes, through various sources, especially "relaciones de sucesos" ("pre-periodical printed news") and "chronicles" the Duchy of Muscovy's image in Spain in 16th and 17th centuries. However, if during a good part of both centuries the Duchy was seen as a distant and exotic kingdom, in the second half of the 17th century, thanks to these pamphlets and chronicles that brought news from the Great Turkish War, especially from 1683, Muscovy gained a special interest, unknown until then. This was due to the fact that Russia began to be considered in the development of international diplomatic strategies.
