The ancient Peabiru, considered by the natives as the “long way,” “the way of the sun,” or the “way of the gods,” was about four thousand kilometers long and linked the Atlantic Ocean to the Pacific and vice versa.

It started (or ended) on the coast of Santa Catarina, Paraná and São Paulo. And it ended (or started) off the coast of Peru and Chile.
It was a network of east-west-east roads that, upon arriving in Bolivia, “mended” with the sophisticated roads of the Incas as well as pre-Inca peoples.
There are at least four hypotheses about who were the “builders” of the Way: 1) The Itarare people; 2) The Guarani people; 3) The Incas; 4) A legendary figure called the Sumé.
The Guarani ancestors knew and trod the Path from one end of the continent to the other, according to reports. As for the construction of the route, one does not go into details, they just say that “The Way was made by old people”.
