  8. ^ Valdivia, Carta, 15 de octubre de 1550 Valdivia says they traveled four leagues to the Bio-Bio River the day following the battle. Vivar, Crónica, Capítulo LXV, says his expedition was coming from the north having crossed the Itata River and Valdivia says they had traveled 10 leagues beyond when the battle occurred. Vivar says the following day they moved four leagues to the Andalien River valley and the bank of the Bio-Bio River, so presumably the battle site was north and east of the Bio-Bio. Lobera, Crónica del reino de Chile, Cap. XVII, says that Quilacura, is thirteen leagues from the modern seaport of Penco.
