Monumento Natural Cerro Nielol, Temuco

4.1
#1 of 16 in Things to do in Temuco
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.

  • The place is quiet, comfortable and relaxing. Perfect for making a break from the city. The trails pass through ponds, shadows, sculptures and a museum. Recommended!

Where to stay in Temuco

Budget options can be hard to come by in Temuco, unless you're willing to stay in the busy and noisy area near the main train station. For something cleaner, larger, and more secure, consider the districts between the main square and the university, where you can stay comfortably without breaking the bank. Pricier hotels in the city center offer all the modern amenities and provide free shuttles to the airport.
