Cerro Caracol, Concepcion

(3.5/5 based on 130 reviews on the web)
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. For travelers who use our international travel planner, Concepcion holidays become easier to arrange, with trips to the Cerro Caracol and other attractions mapped out and timetabled.

  • Landmark of the city, which has everything to be a really great and massive walk for the penquistas and tourists. However, its infrastructure is not the height of this magnificent natural corner of the city. Beautiful panoramic views of the city and the River are available from some sectors.
