Chillan

Trip Planner South America  /  Chile  /  Biobio Region  /  Chillan
With a population of approximately 175,000 people, Chillan represents the most populous urban area in Nuble Province. The birthplace of Chilean national hero Bernardo O'Higgins, the town was founded in 1580, quickly becoming central to regional agriculture thanks to its Mediterranean climate and fertile soil. Nowadays, tourism in Chillan thrives largely due to the city's proximity to popular ski resorts and naturally formed hot springs. With a strong artistic and musical core, cultural venues in the city host traditional and contemporary performances, while local markets preserves a distinctly regional character.
