Valdivia is in southern Chile, located at the confluence of the Calle-Calle, Valdivia and Cau-Cau Rivers. The city of Valdivia and Chiloé Island were once the two southernmost enclaves of the Spanish Empire. From 1645 to 1740, the city depended directly on the Viceroyalty of Peru that financed the building of the Valdivian fort system, which turned Valdivia into one of the most fortified cities of the New World. In the second half of 19th century, Valdivia was the port of entry for German immigrants who were given land and settled in the surrounding areas. Valdivia retains significant architecture and culture from its early Spanish colonial past, and later history of German colonization.
