Stand among the tall wooden sculptures at Monumento Natural Cerro Nielol and gaze out over Temuco. The indigenous sculptures commemorate the 1881 transfer of the surrounding land from the hands of the Mapuche people to colonial control. This agreement was a double-edged sword, as it allowed the establishment of Temuco, but also had negative effects on the area's indigenous population. Explore the surrounding park, which offers plenty of enjoyable walking trails, a lagoon, and an environmental center, as well as several picnic sites. Keep an eye out for red, bell-shaped "copihue," Chile's national flower, which flourishes in the park.
