  • The market of Chillán must be must-see attraction to those who visit the city, I could explore it and is full of butchers and cochinerias both with the specialties of the area, especially sausages. Passing through the street Maipon, out of the market, it is all chillaneja handicraft and tools for huasos Chileans. Beautiful place.
