    Not far from Valdivia, and worth a visit, are the Spanish forts at Niebla and Corral. The river that divides these two forts still has a sunken ship further in that was swept up by the massive earthquake that hit Valdivia in 1960. The earthquake caused massive damage to the area.

    To view the forts you can get to Niebla by car or bus. To get to Corral you should take a ferry across.
