Only 45 minutes from Santiago you will find Isla de Maipo, a traditional town in Chile’s central zone that combines Enotourism, fresh air and patrimony.
This agricultural area is found at the heart of Valle del Maipo. Its recreational center offers camping sites, pools, typical gastronomy and rural tourism.
Its warehouses of wines are a Must-See for wine loves, whose varieties are aged with traditional methods passed down through generations, and began in the XVIII century when descendants of the colonizers introduced the first fruit trees and vineyards.
One can choose to tour the different vineyards in Isla de Maipo, which produce high quality wines thanks to the region’s Mediterranean climate, and the fresh, humid air coming from the costal mountains.
Colonial architecture can still be found in Isla de Maipo, such as the adobe faces of houses on Avenida Santelices, known as the Historic Conservation Zone. In Naltahua one can find an important register of old gold and copper mines dating from the XVII Century when the minerals were extracted by hand using picks.
If you seek something from Chilean roots, visit Isla de Maipo, land of the cowboys, known as huasos, where traditions remain alive. It is a unique experience on your voyage to the far reaches of the world.
