Talca

AttractionsCulture & History ToursFood & DrinksSightseeing Tours
Talca, formerly San Agustín de Talca, city, central Chile. It lies in the Central Valley near the Maule River.

Founded in 1692 by Tomás Marín de Poveda, it was destroyed by earthquakes in 1742 and 1928 and was completely rebuilt. It is now a major urban center midway between Santiago, 160 miles (260 km) to the north-northeast, and Concepción. In 2010 it was again struck by an earthquake that caused extensive damage.
 

Talca lies in the country’s greatest wine-making zone and contains Chile’s largest match industry, as well as shoe, biscuit, bed, chocolate, and noodle factories; paper and flour mills; distilleries; foundries; and a tannery.
 


The University of Talca was founded in 1981. A transportation hub, Talca is on the Pan-American Highway and the main north-south railroad. A branch railroad runs west from the city to the coastal city of Constitución, and a road crosses the Andes into Argentina. Pop. (2002) city, 189,505; (2017) municipality, 220,357.
