  • Large square located in the center of the city. It is opposite the Cathedral and has many statues of various historical figures. It also has enough seats to relax and enjoy an ice cream (you can buy in the surroundings)

  • I was not more than 5 minutes, enough for a couple of photos. I walked several times around and the situation did not change (usually between 7 and 9 pm), long street.

  • not recomendable for "know"
  • The meeting point, coffee stores and gelato. Center square of the city.
  • A very unique fresh Concepción air
  • Was in 1818 the 1st that General O'Higgins declared the Chilean Independence at this place, since that day the arms square is named the Independence square, between its remarkable sculptures include the Mapuche leader "toqui Lautaro" and Spanish Conquistador & founder "Pedro de Valdivia", in the center stands the goddess "Ceres" fountain, symbol of agricultural fertility sorrounded by four beautiful mermaids.
  • This plaza has historically interesting things, the rock where the independence was signed, ask about the story of Lautaro and Pedro de Valdivia.
