Valdivia is a southern Chilean city (pop. 155,000) situated 15 km inland from the Pacific coastal towns of Corral and Niebla. The city lies on the confluence of three rivers. The main economic activities of Valdivia include tourism, wood pulp manufacturing, forestry, metallurgy, and beer production. Valdivia is approached from the Pacific through Corral Bay, protected by the Spanish in the late 16th C by coastal defences and four large forts: the city came to be called The key of the South Sea and Gibraltar of the Pacific. They protected Spanish interests from the English, French, Dutch, and pirates. Valdivia was one of the most fortified cities of the New World.

In 1960 Valdivia was severely damaged by the Great Chilean earthquake, the most powerful earthquake ever recorded at magnitude 9.5. The earthquake generated devastating tsunamis that affected Japan and Hawaii. Debris and destroyed buildings from the earthquake can still be found in the suburban areas. The forts at the mouth of Valdivia River were damaged. After the Great Chilean earthquake Valdivia's economy declined. Valdivia is noted today for remnants of its Spanish colonial past, and a later history of German colonisation (from the mid-1840s) with its German-style wood houses.

As a tourist magnet in Chile, it is sometimes described as La Perla del Sur (The Pearl of the South) and as La ciudad mas linda de Chile (Chile's most beautiful city). It is noted for its summer festivals, and as a centre of education. The centre of the city has a rich architectural heritage. One of its most visited buildings is the "Mercado Municipal" ("municipal market"), a local produce market that is also now a gastronomic and cultural attraction. The region depends strongly on the pulp and paper industry (local trees are being replaced with fast-growing Eucalyptus trees).
