About the Republic of Chile


Chile, officially the Republic of Chile , is a country in South America and Santiago is its capital.

In the map of South America, Chile is drawn like a long, narrow strip between the Andes Mountains in the east and the Pacific Ocean in the west.

The flag of Chile pinned on the map. Horizontal orientation. Macro photography.

The Pacific Ocean forms the entire western border of the country, bordering Peru to the north, Bolivia to the northeast, Argentina to the east, and the Drake Pass at the southernmost point of the country.

This country, along with Ecuador, is the only country in South America that does not share a border with Brazil. The length of the country’s coastline with the Pacific Ocean is 6435 km.

History

Native Americans settled in the fertile valleys and coasts of what is now Chile ,about 10,000 years ago. The Incas also once expanded their empire to parts of present-day Chile.

In 1520, Ferdinand Magellan, who wanted to travel around the world by sea, crossed a canal in southern Chile, now the southern part of Chile that Magellan crossed is the Magellan Strait.

But in 1540, Pedro entered Chile in Valdivia under the command of Francisco Pizarro, one of the Spanish commanders and conquerors of Peru, and began the process of conquering the region.

Valdivia is also the founder of Santiago, the current capital of Chile.

The Mapuche people revolted against Spanish colonization in 1553, which eventually led to the assassination of Pedro Valdivial, the Spanish dictator of Chile.

In the following years, the Mapuche revolted against the Spanish colonialists several times.

The occupation of Spain by French forces and the enthronement of Joseph, brother of Napoleon Bonaparte, in Spain accelerated Chile’s independence process.

But subsequent attempts by the Spaniards to retake Chile led to numerous disputes between the Chilean independence movement and the Spanish military.

In 1817, Fernando O’Higgins, the most famous Chilean nationalist, crossed the Andes with Jose de San Martin, the hero of Argentina’s battles for independence, and defeated them in Chile against the Spanish monarchists.

Following the defeat of Spanish forces on February 12, 1818, Chile declared independence and the country came under Higgins.

People, language and culture

The population of this country is about 16928873 people and the currency of the country is the peso of Chile.

The official language of the Chilean people is Spanish and it is generally spoken by the people.

 The type of government in Chile is now a republic. In general, Chile is a country with a somewhat monotonous population, and most of these populations are of Spanish descent, with varying degrees of mixing with the region’s Native Americans.

 Chile’s urban areas are home to about 85 percent of the country’s population, of which 40 percent live in the metropolitan area of Santiago.

We said that the language of the Chilean people is Spanish, but we must say that understanding the Chilean and dialect of Spanish is difficult due to a series of changes and the removal of some sounds, and it is difficult and incomprehensible for non-Chileans.

Chileans also speak faster than Spanish-speaking countries and their Spanish-speaking neighbors.

For this reason, anyone who is new to this country or even those whose language is Spanish has a difficult Chilean dialect.

Also, the national culture and symbol of this country is a red Kopihui flower.

Geography of Chile

Chile, as a long, narrow coastal country in the form of a southern cone on the west side of the Andes Mountains, stretches from north to south for 4,630 km, with the largest width of the country from east to west being only 430 km. This country has very original and diverse landscapes.

With an area of 292240 square miles (756950 square kilometers), Chile is the 38th largest country in the world.

It is comparable in size to Zambia, and is slightly larger than the US state of Texas.
