Cerro Caracol, Concepcion

3.5
#4 of 6 in Parks in Concepcion
Take a gentle hike through Cerro Caracol, a lush forested park that rewards with a lookout point with panoramic views. Known locally as the green lung of the city, the park features abundant vegetation contrasted nicely by man-made elements, including a neoclassical-style faux castle ruin. Check the website for details on whether the famed lookout point here is open, as operation times tend to be intermittent. If you're coming with children, head to another park adjacent, featuring well-equipped playgrounds.

    repeatedly visit conception, but had not uploaded to this Hill, noted for its dense vegetation, high trees and excellent views from the city, up there is a tower of metal which I never knew if will could visit, on two occasions I was closed and there was no anyone that would give us some indication, but worth, everything very clean, safe, ideal for exercise, go as a couple or with children

    I had the opportunity to explore this Hill under a heavy rain, and it was a very pleasant experience, since the natural look is enhanced even more. That Yes, some more fussy people should be considered by the obvious characteristic of the soil could generate much mud. It has good viewpoints towards the city and spaces prepared for rest.
