Monumento Natural Cerro Nielol, Temuco

4.0
#1 of 15 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.

  • I'm from Temuco and live 15 min from the Hill. I visit it always, jogging in the mornings (free), to do some trekking or even to go to unwind a bit. Important as reserve and be cared for by Conaf, giving the sensation that this bad care, some areas have waste, and the facilities and indications are old and, according to many, boring and unclear. I think I'll have that say that it is true, but it is not nothing compared with the magic that is to be walking along the trails. At any time of the year it is precious and flora always brings surprises, attracts diverse wildlife and the colors are very nice. Offers some viewpoints to Temuco, upstairs is a restaurant that I know nothing about their schedules and contains articles of pablo neruda and a large painting with the history of the settlement of the city, a plaza with games for kids and the unmistakable patagua which has a entertaining hidden history. As temukano recommend it 100% and I recommend visiting it especially on sunny days.
