Through the narratives of French travelers in the Amazon region, a mythical world reappears, inspired by a collective cultural heritage. One century after the discovery of the Amazon region, the French travelers and chroniclers offer their visions of the Spanish and Portuguese conquests. Thus, they expose the resurrection of two principal myths that they associate with the exploration of the Amazon: the Amazones, women warriors, and El Dorado. Superimposing the travelers' narratives and their recourse to myths allows us to realize their classical predispositions and their desire to encourage the exploration with an imaginary lure. Constrained to apply their own realities to the unknown, the chroniclers transform the objective realities into imagination. This text addresses the imagination that arises from the confrontation between the unknown and the cultural background of the travelers in the Amazon region. The link between myth and reality is dissolved. It is progressively substituted, initially by a demystifying scientific approach, and then by romanticism in the form of an exalted attitude towards the other which marks the beginning of the era of Enlightenment
