Bordered by the Andes, the longest continental mountain range in the world, to the east and the Pacific Ocean to the west Chile is a uniquely situated country. Due to its remote location Chile did not experience the same influx of European immigration as other South American countries and as such had a distinct relationship with its indigenous populations. Chile is one of South America’s most stable and prosperous countries and is affectionately called by its citizens The Land of the Poets. This name comes from its two nobel laureates who both won Nobel prizes in literature, Gabriela Mistral and Pablo Neruda.
