Valdivia is one of the most beautiful cities in Chile, surrounded by rivers and the Pacific Ocean, and touched by coastal mists. Founded in 1522 at a strategic location for ships rounding Cape Horn, Valdivia was one of the southernmost cities of the far-flung Spanish Empire and was referred to as the Southern Pearl.
Although it's an old Spanish colonial city, because of a later wave of German immigration, Valdivia now boasts an eclectic concoction of Spanish, German and native cultures. Valdivia is one of Chile's most important industrial centres, but is also a university city that strongly emphasizes the arts as well as being the home of several good German-style beers. In short, Valdivia is a pretty relaxed place, but at the same time it's relatively cosmopolitan. Also, because the city is located in the centre of Chile's spectacular Lake Country, visitors on Valdivia travel packages often use their accommodation in Valdivia to explore that wonderful region.

Many travellers on cheap holidays to Valdivia visit the Feria Fluvial waterfront, a lively riverside market where scraps from fishermen's daily catches are tossed to waiting sea lions. The region's colonial past is called to mind when visiting the remains of Spanish fortifications that were constructed at Castillo de Corral.
The Museo de Arte Contemporáneo, Valdivia's modern art museum, is built atop the foundations of an old brewery. It features fine art, but it also offers fine views of the city across the river. The Museo Histórico y Arqueológico is housed in a riverfront mansion on Isla Teja and is one of Chile's finest. It features an extensive collection of articles from pre-Columbian times through the present, with particularly fine displays of Mapuche Indian artifacts and household items from the early German settlers. Boat cruises on the rivers provide a feel for the history, natural beauty and wildlife of the region. And Valdivia is in the centre of the spectacularly scenic and aptly-named Lake District, which features 12 major and dozens of minor lakes as well as waterfalls, forests, hot springs and volcanic mountains in the Andes.
