Tour to Chile: Valdivia, City of Rivers

OVERVIEW

At Valdivia, the lakes Calle-Calle and Valdivia form the “road of the moon”, and are embraced by the beautiful gardens of Costanera avenue and Teja island.  Their calm waters are important for transporting people and products, as well as for competitions with boats. It is a city of traditions, attractive architecture and old Spanish monuments, and the gastronomy combines sea food with products from the farms.
