Beer, wood and paper are the three most important elements in the economic development of Valdivia, better known as the City of Beer. This beautiful coastal city was founded in 1552 by the Spanish colonizer Pedro de Valdivia, being one of the first cities in Chile, currently it is the capital of Los Ríos Region.
In colonial times this was known as "the key to the southern sea" due to its strategic location for access to the Pacific Ocean, hence during the colony forts were built to protect from enemy attacks, or from the indigenous people of the zone.
Valdivia is a city that stands out for the combination of Mapuche and European roots, which creates an optimal environment for tourist and cultural activity.
In La Perla del Sur, as it is also known, important celebrations are held such as La Semana Valdiviana, which takes place the last week of February to honor the years of foundation. There is also the Valdivia International Film Festival, which has been held for 23 years and is one of the most relevant cinematographic activities in all of Chile.
Culture is an important topic for Valdivians, hence the city has exhibition halls such as Ainilebu or the El Austral Cultural Center. Similarly, the Austral University of Chile has several museums such as the Maurice van de Maele Historical and Anthropological Museum and the Valdivian Museum of Contemporary Art.
