Ñuflo de Chávez
Ñuflo de Chaves, also: "Ñuflo de Chávez", (1518–1568) was a Spanish conquistador. He is best known for founding the city of Santa Cruz de la Sierra in (what is today) Bolivia.
Ñuflo de Chaves was born and grew up in the small Spanish village of Santa Cruz de la Sierra ("Holy Cross of the Mountains"), some 12 km south of Trujillo in the Extremadura region in Spain.
He joined the military and went to South America as a conquistador.
In 1544 in Asunción (in today's Paraguay) he participated in the revolt against the Spanish governor Álvar Núñez Cabeza de Vaca. He helped Domingo Martínez de Irala's appointment as governor, and prepared an expedition to Charcas (currently Sucre). In 1557 he planned an expedition to conquer Jarayes lands, and reached today's Brazilian federal state of Mato Grosso, where he thought that he would find gold mines.
In 1561 he moved to the southern Amazon Basin with a group of settlers, where he founded the town of Santa Cruz de la Sierra, giving it the name of his hometown in Spain. Ñuflo de Chaves settled in his new town with his family, being the first European to introduce goats and sheep to the region. He was killed there in a conflict with the Itatines natives in 1568. A few years later the settlement was moved to a new position 220 km further to the west because of the continuing conflicts with the natives.
Today the Province of Ñuflo de Chávez in the Bolivian Department of Santa Cruz is named in his honor.

Estimadas Hermanas y Hermanos en Cristo: En el tiempo de la Navidad el pueblo creyente recuerda y celebra el proyecto de Dios Padre que mostró su amor hacia nosotros al enviar a su Hijo único al mundo para que tengamos vida por Él (1 Jn 4,9). El Año Nuevo, Año de la Fe, es una ocasión para que todos los fieles comprendamos que el fundamento de la fe cristiana es “el encuentro con un acontecimiento, con una Persona, que da un nuevo horizonte a la vida y, con ello, una orientación decisiva” (DA 12). Este acontecimiento consiste en el nacimiento y en la vida del Señor; en su pasión, muerte y resurrección; y finalmente en la efusión de su Espíritu Santo.

Madrid, curioso.: LA GRAN AVENTURA DE ÑUFLO DE CHAVES EN SU EXPEDICIÓN A TRAVÉS DEL CHACO BOLIVIANO EN 1545.
Ñuflo de Chaves, descubridor del Chaco bolivianoINTRODUCCIÓN AL PERSONAJE Y SUS CIRCUNSTANCIAS.Vasco Núñez de Balvoa, LienzoLo que más admiro en mis congéneres es su determinación y su lucha por conseguir sus metas, sus ideales, sus objetivos, por encima, incluso, de su egoísmo y de sus apetencias personales, admiro su generosidad, su solidaridad, su forma de encarar la vida mirando siempre hacia delante. Uno de ellos es el personaje del que os voy a narrar su pequeña, o grande, historia, en la que procuro mirarme en ella para desarrollar la mía: “Ñuflo de Chaves”.Me vais a permitir pues que hoy narre la interesante, pero triste, historia de mi admirado Ñuflo de Chaves en forma de relato o crónica de una aventura, que es, en realidad, cómo la vivió, y murió, este gran hombre.
