TORRES, Diego de, Spanish missionary, born in Spain in 1551; died in La Plata, South America, in 1638. He was a Spanish nobleman who became a Jesuit in Valladolid in 1571, and spent most of his life in Peru, where he governed several colleges and convents. He was also the founder of the missions of Paraguay. Tortes was sent to Rome as procurator of his province in 1602, and availed himself of this circumstance to publish his work entitled "Relatione Breve del P. Diego de Torres della Compagnia di Giesu, procurator della Provincia del Peru circa il frutto the si raccoglie con gli Indiani di quel Regno" (Rome, 1603; Spanish translation, 1603 ; Latin, 1604; French, Paris, 1604; Polish, Dantzic, 1603).
