    Far one of the best things to do in Valdivia. A postcard required in each one of their strengths.

    Very nice experience to know the reality of the area in the 18th and 19th centuries but very UNDERAPPRECIATED, is should make better use of the system of forts with guided tours, guided tours, videos, brochures, souvenir shops, etc, etc, though in Europe the dissemination would be much better. It is impossible to get a good Museum charging just $1,500 for 2 people, you have to take into account that in other countries this type of historic places them will not meet for less than US$ 10 per person. We must rescue and exploit this important part of history in a more formal way, it is the last bastions of Spanish colony in South America.

    Such old forts built by Spanish soldiers in the 17th century , still remains some stone buildings and the old spanish guns that were used to protect the access to Valdivia from Netherlanders and English corsaries, in the left side of the river is the Corral fort and to the right side is the Niebla fort.

Where to stay in Valdivia

Valdivia boasts a range of accommodations befitting a regional capital. The hub of activity has traditionally centered around the Calle-Calle River, with many of the longer-established resorts and hotels located on the water or just a street or two back. That said, the inland areas of town also offer a diverse set of lodgings. Look around Plaza de los Rios for some of the city's trendier boutiques, along with a good number of simple and charming guesthouses.
