Inés de Suárez

De Valentina Rebolledo
Illustrated by Margarita Valdes

Inés de Suárez went down in history as the first Spanish woman to arrive in Chile. Since she was little, Inés dreamed of trips and adventures that would take her to know the New World. She embarked to America in search of her husband, without imagining that in Peru she would meet Pedro de Valdivia and that he would end up participating in the conquest of Chile and the founding of Santiago, a city that she would defend and where she would live the rest of her life. A story that brings to light the role of a woman ahead of her time in the Spanish conquest of America.
