  • The Sapa Inca Pachacútec began an expansive campaign that was concluded by his heirs, setting the Maule River as the limit. The Inca commander Ilabe was established in the valley of Llollehue. There they also founded a colony and a fortress, which were left in charge of Tala Canta, the son of the Inca. In this way the name Talagante was derived.
  • Once founded the capital of the Kingdom of Chile, Bartolomé Blumenthal, carpenter and builder (as well as financier of Valdivia), was commissioned to look for wood for this land. In this way Blumenthal arrived at the lands of the Inca Tala Canta fortresses, the Inca and Blumenthal came to have a great understanding. Blumenthal the Inca not only provided him with wood but also gave him labor for the construction of Santiago ..
