Where is Talca Located?
Talca, Paris y Londres
– this is a buzzing or even loud laughing Phrase that is ubiquitous in Talca and was even the namesake of a popular bus company. However, whether Paris and London know the 300 kilometers south of Santiago on the Panamericana Talca, is doubtful. Although Talca is the capital, namely the Regíon de Maule, but the Séptima Región (seventh Region) – is a fairly rural Region, it is conservative and lags behind the time a little. And Talca also reflects the character of its Region. Despite its over 200,000 inhabitants, the city has a small urban and leisurely appearance.
What Country is Talca in?
But where does the absurd idea come from, to call Talca, Paris and London together in one breath? The origin of the Phrase is unclear. But there are two theories. On the one hand, it is assumed that there was once a hat vendor of French origin in Talca and that Phrase stood on the hat labels. The second theory is that it originates from the statement of an Englishman “Talca parece Londres” (Talca is similar to London). A reference to the many nebulae at the winter time in Talca.
