Why Visit Chile?
Chile, a slender nation stretching along the western edge of South America, is celebrated for its diverse landscapes, from the arid Atacama Desert in the north to the pristine fjords of Patagonia in the south. Santiago serves as the country’s capital and largest city.
Chile’s landscapes include the towering Andes Mountains that define its eastern border, numerous volcanoes, and a long Pacific coastline. Its history is marked by indigenous cultures like the Mapuche, Spanish colonization led by conquistador Pedro de Valdivia, and a struggle for independence led by figures like Bernardo O’Higgins and José de San Martín.
