Pay a visit to Mercado Fluvial de Valdivia, a lively market bursting with fresh fish and seafood from the region. Set along the Valdivia River, the market features the locally caught bounty of the sea, which ranges from clams and mussels to a whole host of sizeable fish species. Try some for yourself by grabbing freshly prepared fish from one of the many stands in the area. Note that vendors toss the remains of the fish into the river after cleaning; keep your eyes peeled along the water and you may even catch a glimpse of a local sea lion looking for a handout.

  • Wonderful walk, short but very entertaining; You should visit it right when it comes to brunch to test rich products offered by some locals as an appetizer. Very bad smell but is a market with very fresh, so that no can be counted as a point against. Approach is to them local of fish that look at the spectacle of them wolves marine waiting for remains of fish is very comic. Without place to doubt Valdivia an of the cities more beautiful of our country.

  • We were visiting with the family and we have a market that is full of life and colors, where birds and sea lions resting on the docks asking and receiving the remains of the processing of the catch of the day. We had lunch in a restorancito of the many there opposite the market, very rich.
