A large earthquake that occurred in 1575 devastated the city of Valdivia. The city was destroyed more than once by the Mapuche people in the 16th century; everything is recorded in chronicles. A series of natural catastrophes that have marked the city continued: waterspouts, great fires, floods, a dictatorship and great industrial pollution over the largest wetland, all have been recorded by a historical photographic lens, which continues to record a social outbreak and the global confinement.
