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.

    An echo scene, quiet, clean, lots of vegetation, native forest. Ideal to enjoy in family. To improve: the restaurant.

    Place to walk and visit, viewpoint of the city and breathing air of the Araucanía, palpate the flora and fauna of a native region in the South of Chile, the ideal, is to go visit the park with day without rain and walk, touch and see the natural region. Leave a souvenir.

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.
