Temuco developed into a major Chilean city because of a forestry and livestock boom the region experienced during the early decades of the 20th century.
Venture out of the city with trips to Conguillio National Park (in Melipeuco) and Parque Nacional Nahuelbuta (in Angol). There's much more to do: don't miss a visit to Mercado Municipal de Temuco, look for gifts at Santiago Wine Club Temuco, explore the striking landscape of Monumento Natural Cerro Nielol, and examine the collection at Museo Nacional Ferroviario Pablo Neruda de Temuco.

To see where to stay, topicsMoreInfo.option.ratings, maps, and other tourist information, read our Temuco trip maker app .
