Pichilemu (Mapudungun: Small forest, pronounced: [pitʃiˈlemu] ( )), originally known as Pichilemo,[6] is a beach resort city and commune in central Chile, and capital of Cardenal Caro Province. The commune comprises an urban center and twenty-two villages, such as Ciruelos, Cáhuil, and Espinillo. It is located southwest of Santiago, the capital of Chile. Pichilemu had 12,251 residents as of 2012.

The Pichilemu area was long populated by the indigenous Promaucaes. European-Chilean development began mid-sixteenth century, as conquistador Pedro de Valdivia gave Juan Gómez de Almagro the Topocalma encomienda (which included the current territory of Pichilemu) in January 1541. Pichilemu was established as an "autonomous commune" on December 22, 1891, by decree of President Jorge Montt and Interior Minister Manuel José Irarrázabal. Agustín Ross Edwards, a Chilean politician and member of the Ross Edwards family, planned to develop it as a beach resort on the Pacific Ocean for upper-class Chileans.

Pichilemu is home to five of the National Monuments of Chile: Agustín Ross Cultural Centre and Park; the wooden railway station, Estación Pichilemu; El Árbol tunnel; and the Caballo de Agua. Part of the city was declared a Zona Típica ("Traditional Area" or "Heritage Site") by the National Monuments Council, in 2004.

The city is part of District No. 35 and is in the ninth senatorial constituency of O'Higgins Region electoral division. Pichilemu is home to the main beach in O'Higgins Region. It is a tourist destination for surfing, windsurfing and funboarding.

Tourism is the main industry of the city, but forestry and handicrafts are also important. Pichilemu has many expansive dark sand beaches. Several surf championships take place in the city each year at Punta de Lobos, which according to Fodor's is "widely considered the best surfing in South America year-round."

History[edit]

Main article: History of Pichilemu

Pichilemu was inhabited by Promaucaes, a pre-Columbian tribal group, until the Spanish conquest of Chile.[7] They were hunter-gatherers and fishermen who lived primarily along the Cachapoal and Maule rivers.[7] The remaining Promaucaes were assimilated into Chilean society through a process of hispanicization and mestization after the conquest of Chile.[8]

Aureliano Oyarzún, professor of pathology at University of Chile, investigated pre-Ceramic middens from Pichilemu and Cahuil. His book Crónicas de Pichilemu–Cáhuil (Chronicles of Pichilemu–Cáhuil) was published posthumously, in 1957.[9] Tomás Guevara published two volumes of Historia de Chile, Chile Prehispánico (History of Chile, Pre-Hispanic Chile) in 1929, which discusses the indigenous center of Apalta, the Pichilemu middens, the Malloa petroglyphs, a stone cup from Nancagua, and pottery finds in Peralillo.[10]

José Toribio Medina (1852–1930), who was a writer and historiographer, spent most of his life in Colchagua Province, and completed his first archeological investigations in Pichilemu. In 1908, he published Los Restos Indígenas de Pichilemu (English: The Indigenous Remains of Pichilemu),[1][10] in which he stated that the Indians that were inhabiting Pichilemu when the Spaniards arrived at Chile were Promaucaes, part of the Topocalma encomienda, given on January 24, 1544, by Pedro de Valdivia to Juan Gómez de Almagro, therefore establishing Pichilemu.[1]

During the colonial and Republican periods, agriculture was promoted by the government. Many Chilean haciendas (estates) were successful during this time, including the Pichileminian Hacienda San Antonio de Petrel.[10] Part of the land where San Antonio de Petrel was created was given by the Captaincy General of Chile to Bartolomé de Rojas y Puebla in 1611, who later acquired more lands in order to establish it.[11] San Antonio de Petrel produced leather, jerky, soles, tallow, and cordovan, as well as other products which would later be exported to Peru, or sold in Santiago and Valparaíso.[11] San Antonio de Petrel was bordered by properties of Lauriano Gaete and Ninfa Vargas, and Pedro Pavez Polanco.

The area around Pichilemu was very densely populated, especially in Cáhuil, where there are salt deposits that were exploited by natives. Pichilemu has had censuses taken since the 17th century.[12]

In 1872, President of Chile Aníbal Pinto commissioned the corvette captain Francisco Vidal Gormaz to perform a survey of the coast between Tumán Creek and Boca del Mataquito. He concluded that Pichilemu was the best place to construct a ferry. The family of Daniel Ortúzar, inheritors of the hacienda San Antonio de Petrel, constructed a dock in 1875, which served as a fishing port for a few years, and would be decreed as a "minor dock" by President José Manuel Balmaceda in 1887.[12][13][14] Homes were built along the dock on what currently is the Daniel Ortúzar Avenue (Avenida Daniel Ortúzar).[15][16] The name Pichilemu comes from the Mapudungún words pichi (little) and lemu (forest).[17]

During the 1891 Chilean Civil War, Daniel Ortúzar and the priest of Alcones were transferred as prisoners from Pichilemu to Valparaíso via the dock,[18][19] which was later burned.[14] The dock was later reconstructed and used until 1912, but it never reached "port" status.[12][14]

The inheritors of Lauriano Gaete and Ninfa Vargas, who were proprietaries of the land which is currently Central Pichilemu, founded the town in late 1891 after conceiving the design of the city with engineer Emilio Nichón.[19] By decree of President Jorge Montt and his Interior Minister, Manuel José Irarrázabal, the city was officially established as an "autonomous commune" on December 22, 1891.[19][20] José María Caro Martínez became the first mayor of the city in 1894,[20] and regularized and improved the design of the city the same year.[16][19] Caro Martínez held the mayor office until 1905.[20]

Agustín Ross, circa 1915

Agustín Ross Edwards, a Chilean writer, Member of Parliament, minister, and politician,[21][22][23] bought a 300-hectare (740-acre) tract of land, and named it La Posada, in 1885. At the time, it was merely a set of thick-walled barracks.[24]

Agustín Ross turned Pichilemu into a summer resort town for affluent people from Santiago. He designed an urban setting that included a park and a forest of over 10 hectares (25 acres).[24][25] He transformed La Posada into a hotel, named Gran Hotel Pichilemu, which has since been renamed to Hotel Agustín Ross. He built the Ross Casino (currently a cultural center), several chalets, terraces, embankments, stone walls, a balcony facing the beach, and several large homes with building materials and furniture imported from France and England. However, Ross was not able to build the dock he had planned for the city.[26] He died in 1926 in Viña del Mar. Agustín Ross' inheritors donated all of his constructions (streets, avenues, squares, seven hectares of forests, the park in front of the hotel, the perrons, the balcony, and the terraces) to the Municipality of Pichilemu, on the condition that the municipality would hold them for recreation and public access.[24] The Agustín Ross Casino, constructed in 1905, and the Agustín Ross Park, constructed in 1885, have since become an important part of the city, and have been declared Monumentos Históricos (Historic Monuments) by the National Monuments Council.[24]

After the creation of the Cardenal Caro Province, by decree of General Augusto Pinochet on October 3, 1979, Pichilemu became its capital.[27] The province is named after the first Chilean Catholic Cardinal, José María Caro Rodríguez, who was born in Pichilemu.[13][28][29]

Pichilemu was severely affected by the February 27, 2010, Chile earthquake and its subsequent tsunami, which provoked massive destruction in the coastal zone.[30] On March 11, 2010, at 11:39:41 (14:39:41 UTC), a magnitude 6.9 earthquake occurred 15 kilometres (9 mi) northwest of Pichilemu,[31][32] killing one person.[33]

Pichilemu is located 126 kilometres (78 mi) west of San Fernando, in the westernmost area of the O'Higgins Region, on the coast of the Pacific Ocean.[34] It is within a three-hour drive of the Andes Mountains.[35] It is near the Cordillera de la Costa (Coastal Mountain Range) which rises to 2,000 metres (6,562 ft) in elevation.[36]

The city is bordered by Litueche to the north, Paredones to the south, and Marchigüe and Pumanque to the east. To the west lies the Pacific Ocean.[37] Pichilemu covers an area of 749.1 square kilometres (289.2 sq mi).[38]

Pichilemu is located close to a geological fault (Pichilemu Fault), which is according to reports between the city and Vichuquén at 15 km depth, 40 km in length and 20 km wide.[39] It is not known whether the fault was formed during the March 11, 2010 earthquake or if it was just reactivated.[40]

Although the majority of the forest areas around Pichilemu are covered with pine and eucalyptus plantations, a native forest (now the Municipal Forest) remains. It contains species such as Litres, Quillayes, Boldos, Espinos, and Peumos.[16]

The city consists of an urban center and 22 rural villages: Alto Colorado,[41] Alto Ramírez, Barrancas, Cáhuil, Cardonal de Panilonco, Ciruelos, Cóguil, El Maqui, El Guindo,[42] Espinillo, Estación Larraín Alcalde, La Aguada, La Palmilla, La Villa, La Plaza, Las Comillas, Pueblo de Viudas, Quebrada del Nuevo Reino, Pañul, Rodeillo, San Antonio de Petrel,[42] and Tanumé.[12]

Nearby bodies of water (apart from the Pacific Ocean) include the Nilahue Estuary, which flows to Cáhuil Lagoon, Petrel Estuary, which flows to Petrel Lagoon, and El Barro, El Bajel, and El Ancho lagoons, the latter of which provides the city with drinking water.[12]

Pichilemu experiences a Mediterranean climate, with winter rains which reach 700 millimetres (28 in).[12][43] The rest of the year is dry, often windy, and sometimes with coastal fog. Occasionally the city receives winds as high as 150 kilometres per hour (93 mph).[44]

The National Statistics Institute of Chile has estimated that, as of 2010, there were 14,302 inhabitants in the city; classifying a 78.96% of them as living in an urban area and a 21.04% as living in a rural area, with 7,499 men (52.4%) and 6,803 women (47.5%); the population density was estimated as 19.09 per square mile.[45] In 2012, as published in the website of the Library of the National Congress of Chile, the population of Pichilemu is estimated to be around 15,153 inhabitants; 7,957 men, and 7,196 women.[50] However, a document by the National Statistics Institute showing the preliminary results of the 2012 census stated there were only 12,866 inhabitants in Pichilemu, only a 5.9 per cent more since the 2002 census; additionally, the document said there were 10,451 households, a 67.8 per cent more than the previous census.[54]

Most of the people from Pichilemu are Catholic, specifically 7,611 persons (83.44%), well above the national and regional average (69.96% and 79.08%, respectively); the evangelical population is considerably lower, at only 689 people (7.55%); 361 (3.96%) said they were Atheists or Agnostic individuals, while the remaining 460 (5.04%) are part of other religions. Based on information from the Casen survey, 24 persons living in Pichilemu declared themselves as Aymaras in 2006, and in 2009, 390 people said they were part of the Mapuche indigenous ethnic group; the survey revealed there is no one living in Pichilemu belonging either to the Atacameños nor the Rapa Nui indigenous.[50]

Governance[edit]

Roberto Córdova, current mayor of Pichilemu, on November 19, 2010.

Pichilemu, along with the communes of Placilla, Nancagua, Chépica, Santa Cruz, Pumanque, Palmilla, Peralillo, Navidad, Lolol, Litueche, La Estrella, Marchihue, and Paredones, is part of Electoral District No. 35 and belongs to the 9th Senatorial Constituency (O'Higgins) of the electoral divisions of Chile.[55]

Pichilemu is governed by the mayor (alcalde), who manages the executive function. The City Council (concejo municipal) manages the legislative function. The mayors and the councilors are elected popularly every four years, with possibility of re-election.[56] Marcelo Cabrera Martínez was elected in 2008 as the new mayor with 42.08 percent of the vote;[57] he served from May[58] to August 2009, when he was permanently banned from holding public office after being convicted for adulterating tickets.[59] Then, the municipal council elected Roberto Córdova as new mayor on September 9, 2009.[60] Between 2007 and 2009, Pichilemu had seven mayors,[61][62] after Jorge Vargas González was removed from the office for committing the crime of bribery;[62][63] he was mayor for over 10 years, from 1996[64][65][66] to 2007.[62] Vargas was succeeded by Victor Rojas, who was later accused of the same crime and eventually removed from the office too.[67] Roberto Córdova was popularly elected mayor for the first time in 2012 with 47.9 percent.[3] The current councilors of Pichilemu are Aldo Polanco Contreras, Andrea Aranda Escudero, Marta Urzúa Púa, Mario Morales Cárceles, Felipe Bustamante Olivares, and Hugo Toro Galaz. Both the mayor and the councilors took office on 6 December 2012, and their term will expire on 6 December 2016.[68]

The Pichilemu Police, known in Spanish as Carabineros de Pichilemu, and officially Tercera Comisaría de Carabineros de Pichilemu, are commanded by Tomás Molina Meza.[69] The police station is located in front of the former Pichilemu post office building, in Daniel Ortúzar avenue.[69]

Economy[edit]

Tourism is the main industry of Pichilemu, especially in the urban center and some rural areas such as Cáhuil and Ciruelos. Forestry, mainly pine and eucalyptus, is another major industry. The area is also known for handicrafts.[12] Although fishing is not very important to O'Higgins Region, due to unsuitable coastlines, it is common in Pichilemu, Bucalemu, and Navidad.[10]

Pichilemu has a clay deposit in the Pañul area.[10] According to archaeological investigations, pottery was first manufactured in the area around 300 BCE. It is still a stalwart today — Ciruelos and El Copao are well known for the pottery created there.[70]

Landmarks[edit]

The Municipal Forest was donated by the Ross family in 1935

The Bosque Municipal (Municipal Forest) was donated by the Ross family in 1935. The main access to the forest is in front of Ross Casino, near Paseo el Sol; or by a road near the Colegio Preciosa Sangre. The forest has a footpath surrounded by palms, pines, and many other varieties of trees.[71]

Conchal Indígena (Indigenous Midden) is an archaeological site of pre-Hispanic times. It is located on the site of an ancient fishing village 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) from Punta de Lobos and 0.3 kilometres (0.19 mi) south of Los Curas Lagoon.[72][73] Laguna Los Curas (Los Curas Lagoon) is a natural area used for eco-tourist activities such as fishing located 7 kilometres (4.3 mi) south of Pichilemu. Another lagoon, the Laguna del Perro (The Dog's Lagoon) is located 8.5 kilometres (5.3 mi) south of Pichilemu. It is used for recreational activities.[72][73]

Laguna El Alto (El Alto Lagoon) is a small, rain-fed lagoon located at Chorrillos Beach that is often used for camping and picnics. The lagoon is an hour and a half drive from Pichilemu, traveling to the north by Chorrillos beach.[72] Poza del Encanto is a lagoon located 30 kilometres (19 mi) from Pichilemu. It is home to a large variety of native fauna.[74] The Estero Nilahue (Nilahue Lagoon) is located 15 kilometres (9.3 mi) from Pichilemu. It has several beaches, including El Bronce, El Maquí, and Laguna El Vado.[75]

St. Andrew Church is located in Ciruelos, 13 kilometres (8.1 mi) from Pichilemu. It was constructed in 1779, and its altar was built in the 1940s. It has a harmonium, confessional boxes, and ancient images of saints. Its original image of St. Andrew was made of papier mache. The old parish was created by Archbishop Rafael Valentín Valdivieso in 1864. Cardinal José María Caro Rodríguez was baptized there. The feast day of St. Andrew is celebrated every November 30 at the church.[72][73]

The Museo del Niño Rural (the Rural Kid Museum) was created as an initiative of teacher Carlos Leyton and his students. It is a modern building that utilises traditional architecture. Three rooms contain a collection of stone tools, arrowheads, and clay tools made by the indigenous people of the region. Also on display are domestic tools from early colonists.[76]

El Copao is a hamlet located 14 kilometres (8.7 mi) east of Pichilemu. Its main industry is domestic pottery production, using clay as a raw material.[72] Pañul is a settlement located 17 kilometres (11 mi) from Pichilemu. Its name in Mapudungun means "medicinal herb." Pañul produces pottery made with locally obtained clay.[77] Cáhuil is a small settlement located 13 kilometres (8.1 mi)[72] south of Pichilemu. Its name in Mapudungun means "parrot place". Cahuil lagoon is used for fishing, swimming, and kayaking; kiteboarding lessons are offered on the lagoon. The Cáhuil Bridge is open to motor traffic, and has a view of the Cahuil zone. The bridge provides access to Curicó, Lolol, Bucalemu, and other nearby places.[74]

Pichilemu was declared a Typical Zone by the National Monuments Council of Chile, by decree No. 1097 on December 22, 2004.[24]

The city is home to five other National Monuments: Ross Park, Ross Casino, El Árbol Tunnel, the wooden railway station, Estación Pichilemu, and Caballo de Agua.[78]

Agustín Ross Cultural Centre[edit]

The current Cultural Centre, in front of Ross Park, is a three-floor casino constructed with imported materials in early 1900s by Agustín Ross. It originally housed a mail and telegraph service, with a large store. The first casino in Chile was opened in this building on January 20, 1906.[26][79][80] It operated until 1932, when the Viña del Mar Casino was opened.[81]

The building was renovated and reopened in 2009 as a cultural arts center. It currently houses several gallery spaces and the public library. During its restoration, workers found many historical artifacts, including a copy of Las Últimas Noticias from February 1941 when Ross Casino served as a hotel; an American telephone battery dating from the period of 1909 to 1915; and a tile from the casino's ceiling signed by workers during the building's construction in 1914.[82]

Ross Park, created by Agustín Ross in 1885, contains 100-year-old native Chilean palms (Phoenix canariensis) and many green spaces. It was restored in December 1987, and is now a popular walking destination.[72][83] The former casino was named National Monuments in 1988.[72][84]

Ross hotel was created by Agustín Ross in 1885, and originally named Great Hotel Pichilemu (Gran Hotel Pichilemu).[44] It is one of the oldest hotels in Chile. Although it is still partially open to guests, it is in a state of disrepair.[24]

Wooden railway station[edit]

Main article: Estación Pichilemu

The old wooden railway station, Estación Pichilemu, constructed around 1925, is one of the National Monuments of Chile.[79] In the O'Higgins Region, 357 kilometres (222 mi) of railway lines were constructed, but only 161 kilometres (100 mi) still exist.[85] The 119 kilometres (74 mi) San Fernando–Pichilemu section was constructed between 1869 and 1926.[79] Passenger services operated on the line until 1986 and freight services were operational until 1995.[85] In 2006, the Peralillo–Pichilemu section was removed completely.[85][86]

It remained in operation until the 1990s, and became a National Monument on September 16, 1994.[84] It has since become an arts and culture center and tourism information office.[72] It exhibits decorative and practical objects from the 1920s, and features many old clothes.[72]

Beaches[edit]

Pichilemu's beaches are popular with local and international tourists.[87]

Pichilemu has several expansive dark sand beaches.[88] The water is cool all year-round, and many tourists choose to swim at the shore break during the summer months.[88] Common activities include bodyboarding, surfing, windsurfing, and kitesurfing.[89][90]

The northernmost of the beaches is Playa Las Terrazas or Playa Principal (The Terraces Beach or Main Beach), which is in front of Ross Park. It is popular for surfing. Near the beach and at Ross Park, there are balustrades and long stairs dating from the early 1900s. There is a balcony over the rocks at the southern end of the beach.[72] It is the busiest during the summer months. Several surf schools, such as La Ola Perfecta, and Lobos del Pacífico, are located nearby, as is the fish market at Fishermen Creek.[53]

Located south of the town and around the other side of the Puntilla, Playa Infiernillo (Little Hell Beach) is rocky and has tide-pools.[91] This area is used for fishing.[53] South of Infiernillo is Playa Hermosa (Beautiful Beach), which is popular for walking and fishing.[72]

Further south, 6 kilometres (3.7 mi) from Pichilemu, Punta de Lobos has a beach sheltered from the southern winds. It is an increasingly popular destination for tourists and surfers.[90] Several surf contests are held there every year.[92] The size of waves varies throughout the year. Large swells in fall and winter can reach heights of up to 15 metres (49 ft). It is widely considered one of the best beaches for surfing worldwide.[88] In 2012, it was named one of the "50 most thrilling surf destinations".[93]

Pichilemu is regarded as the prime location for surfing in Chile, particularly at Punta de Lobos.[94][95][96] Every October and December, an International Championship of Surf is held at La Puntilla Beach.[97] Punta de Lobos hosts the Campeonato Nacional de Surf (National Surfing Championship) every summer.[25][98][99]

Media[edit]

El Marino, currently an online newspaper, was first published in 1917.

There are five local newspapers: Pichilemu News is an online newspaper in Spanish,[100] directed by former councilor of Pichilemu Washington Saldías González, founded on 14 January 2000;[100][101] El Marino ("The Marine"), which takes its name from a 1917 newspaper,[102] is an online daily directed by Diego Grez Cañete, first published on 30 April 2013 as Memoria Pichilemina ("Memoir of Pichilemu");[103][104][105] El Expreso de la Costa ("The Express of the Coast") is a monthly newspaper directed by Félix Calderón Vargas, first published on 30 June 2000;[106] El Faro del Secano ("The Dryland's Lighthouse") was founded in November 2013 by local journalist Óscar Rojas Connell, and is distributed throughout the Cardenal Caro Province;[107][108] and La Voz de la Región ("The Voice of the Region"), published every two weeks, first appeared on 2 January 2014, and is directed by Patricio Flores Retamales.[109][110][111]

Radio services come from Radio Entreolas, Radio Atardecer, Radio Somos Pichilemu (directed by former Mayor Jorge Vargas González and his wife and current Councilor Andrea Aranda), Radio Isla,[112] and Radio Corporación.[113] A television channel, Canal 3 Pichilemu, also broadcasts in the area.[114]

Education[edit]

Secondary building of the Colegio de la Preciosa Sangre de Pichilemu

Education establishments in Pichilemu include Charly's School, a primary and secondary school in El Llano;[115] Escuela Digna Camilo Aguilar (Digna Camilo Aguilar School), a primary school also located in El Llano;[116] Colegio Libertadores (Liberators School), a primary school in Infiernillo; Colegio de la Preciosa Sangre (Precious Blood School), a primary and secondary school located near El Llano; Colegio Divino Maestro (Divine Master School), a primary school located near Cáhuil Avenue; and Escuela Pueblo de Viudas (Pueblo de Viudas School), a primary school in Pueblo de Viudas.[117]

Other schools include the Liceo Agustín Ross Edwards (Agustín Ross Edwards High School), a secondary school in El Llano, near Escuela Digna Camilo Aguilar and Charly's School, and Jardín Amanecer (Dawn Garden), a kindergarten school in El Llano.[117]

Higher education first arrived at Pichilemu in 1970, when the Centro Medio Profesional de Pichilemu (Pichilemu Secondary-Professional Centre) was created; however, it was discontinued the next year.[118] In 2002, thirty-one years after the Centro Medio Profesional was discontinued, the Universidad Academia de Humanismo Cristiano (Academy of Christian Humanism University) began to give classes of Engineering in Public Gesture Management, and Engineering in Environment Gesture Management.
