Excursion to Valdivia from Puerto Varas
The founder of the city was Don Pedro de Valdivia, he did it in 1522 and from that very moment was a thriving place, with
Remarkable historical episodes.
The first destination is the avenue Arturo Prat or coastal, main pedestrian promenade along the Calle Calle River, where the Market
Inland waterway, jetties of boat excursions and shipyards impact the visitor, touring its typical fair, in which they offer
Fresh seafood, fruits and vegetables from the islands.
On the other side of the river we contemplate the buildings of the Historical Museum and of Contemporary Art.
After visiting the river market we go to Avenida General Lagos, the oldest neighborhood in the city, where we will appreciate
The Torreón del Canelo, a kind of watch post that the Spaniards used in colonial times to protect themselves
Of aborigines and corsairs.
Returning to the central area, we find the church of San Francisco and the Republic Square or Arms, appreciating the details
Of its gardens and roundabout, the Government House and the cathedral.
Then we cross the bridge Pedro de Valdivia towards the island Teja, we leave the city to continue along the coastal route
Towards Niebla and the resort Los Molinos crossing bridges, docks and the area where the rivers Cruces and Calle Calle
Form the Valdivia, finding the horizon of the Pacific Ocean in all its splendor: a magnificent spectacle.
The Castillo de Niebla, located at a strategic point facing the sea, has left traces that marked Valdivia during the events
Of century XVII, when it was constituted in its system of defense. When you enter the museum halls, the objects you share
Showcases (documentation, flags, clothing) expose the ambitions of the pirates. Outside, walls built
With stone cancagua and cannons fused in workshops of the Mother Country are mute representatives of that historical past.
