OvalleRegión de Coquimbo
Ovalle is located 88 km south of La Serena and 404 km from Santiago. It has 53,515 inhabitants and lies on the banks of the river Grande. It was founded on April 21, 1831, since when it has been dependent on La Serena. It is known as the “the Pearl of the Limarí”.
The inland valleys close to the city are used for farming, fruit and pisco production, this being the main center of supply for the north of Chile. We recommend visiting the Church of San Vicente Ferrer, the Museum of Limarí which houses the biggest collection of diaguita pottery, and the Design Fair of Ovalle. We also recommend visiting the Termas de Socos, the Fray Jorge National Park, where in amongst the usual arid land of this zone, you will find a lovely wood feature of the Valdivia area, with various native species, the Talinay National Park and the National Monument, the Valle del Encanto.
