Antonio Róbinson Saldías González, also known as Don Antonio de Petrel (born 6 May 1951)[1] is a Chilean researcher and writer. He studied philosophy at the University of Concepción.


In 1990, Saldías published the book Pichilemu, Mis Fuentes de Información. Prof. Cesar Caviedes, at the Handbook of Latin American Studies of the Library of Congress, notes: "a rather insignificant place on the coast of central Chile is "embellished" in the prose of this local writer".[2]

Three years later, he published Litueche, antes El Rosario; in 1996, published the anthology Pichilemu, Canto de Puetas, that included popular poems by Pichileminian authors such as Antonio Álvarez Gaete, Gerardo Caroca Tobar, Raimundo León Morales, Miguel Becerra Pavez, Pedro Reyes González, Hugo González Urzúa and himself; and Franciscanos en Litueche in December 2004.[3]

Saldías is a collaborator of El Marino.[4]
