    the first one sentence should be writter in this way:

    El veintiocho de octubre de mil setecientos cuarenta y seis un poderoso terremoto causó graves daños a la ciudad y destruyo el Callao.

  • spanish -

    En el veintiocho = drop "en" because the way to say "on" with a date is "El veintiocho......." de un mil setecientos = drop "un" = de mil setecientos.....

    Cristo llamó a El = Cristo llamado El....

    Casa de Bourbon, = de Borbón,...

    las Luces = is this from your text? There are other words for Enlightenment

    una peleas de gallos Coliseo (I'm not sure of the English you provide!) = un Coliseo de peleas de gallos

    el segundo tiempo del siglo = la segunda mitad del siglo...Bourbon como = Borbón; por ejemplo.....

    de Perú Superior = del Perú...

    alzamientos grandes = insurrecciones

    fueron que de Juan Santos Atahualpa en un mil = fueron las de Juan....en mil...
    y Alzamiento = de la Insurrección...en un mil setecientos = en mil setecientos

    NOTE: It would be easier to keep track of where I am (scanning up & down, up & down) if these sentences were numbered.

    la invasión napoleónico de la Península ibera = la invasión napoleónica de la Península Ibérica y....sucedieron. (plural/compound subject requires plural verb)

    Nuevo Granada = Nueva Granada.....del Perú (please check that everywhere you said "Peru" in Spanish, you used "el Perú."


    P.S. I think I caught them all, but feel free to make all the corrections and post again, if you have time, for final proofreading.

  • spanish -

    the second one sentence should be written in this way:

    Este desastre llevó a una intensa devoción por una imagen de Cristo llamada El Señor de los Milagros.

    Thanks to Mike, look at that 2nd one again. Are you saying the "imagen" is called? = llamada or "Cristo" is called = llamado.
