The Lake District Sights

Monumento Natural Cerro Ñielol

  • Park (National/State/Provincial)

Fodor's Review

This imposing hillside site is where the 1881 treaty between the Mapuche and the Chilean army was signed, allowing for the city of Temuco to be established. Trails bloom with bright red copihues (a bell-like flower with lush green foliage), Chile's national flower, in autumn (March–May). The monument, not far from downtown, is part of Chile's national park system.
