  • A place that not only attracts tourists. Mixture of aromas of vegetables, meat, smoky meals and up to the smell of its passers-by. Mixture of sounds, music, screams, conversations among friends and environmental noise. Worth go out there once in a while because you are tourist or local forward remember that you are of Chillán.

  • The market has enough stalls selling sausages (the most typical of the area), agricultural products (fruits, vegetables and seasonings typical) and type most restaurants for sale. Overwhelm the selling of this last, not you can walk while they are on top of each offering typical dishes. We tried 4 different dishes and on average spend 10,000 for lunch, which is not very cheap considering the contents of the same
