  • Very beautiful place full of natural life and spacious spaces, has iconic places of the city such as the arch of medicine and the mural of the pinacoteca in the house of art. Highly recommended for walking and enjoying the university city.

  • It is a true University City; with avenues, parks, gardens, lagoons, monumental buildings of various faculties and iconic symbolic landmarks, such as its virtual entrance portico (Arco de la University de Concepción), the Campanil (Clock Tower), the Forum-Amphitheatre and the Central Library, all structured along and around a central axis that communicates openly and permanently to the campus with the city, without bars or barriers, generating a fusion and symbiosis of continuity with the urban fabric. Declared a National Historic Monument in 2016, it is a must, becoming the great open-air museum and urban space par excellence in the city.

  • Lovely campus, friendly students, and some good cheap places tp eat nearby.
  • Sunday morning took an early stroll through the main campus. Beautiful views through the main building portal into the plaza beyond with wooded hills crowning the distant view.
