Huerta del Maule

Huerta del Maule or Huerta de Maule is a Chilean hamlet (caserío) in San Javier, Linares Province, Maule Region. This picturesque and bucolic place, with a current permanent population of less than 300, used to have far more importance and population two centuries ago, having been a strategic place because of its location at the south of the Maule river and west of the Loncomilla River in central Chile, over the busy, old colonial route from Santiago - Talca to Concepción.

Purapel River

The Purapel river is a tributary of the river Perquilauquén, and traverses parts of the Talca and Linares provinces, in the Maule Region of Chile. It is born in the Cordillera de la Costa, near Empedrado, forms part of the border between these two provinces and, in its lower course, forms part of the border between the provinces of Linares and Cauquenes. The Purapel is an anomaly since it flows eastward in a country where the overwhelming majority of rivers flow east-to-west.

Battle of the Maule

The Battle of the Maule was fought between the Mapuche people and the Inca Empire in what is now Chile. The three-day battle, which is generally believed to have occurred in the reign of Tupac Inca Yupanqui (1471-93 CE), marked the end of the Incas' southward expansion. In a six-year campaign with an army that eventually rose to 50,000 men, the Inca general Sinchiruca had subdued the regions of northern Chile, Copiapó, Coquimbo, Aconcagua and the Maipo Valley around what is now Santiago.
