Alemania Avenue

Is the principal artery in Temuco. Here we can find The Araucaria Museum building (19th century Chilean style); the Menchaca Lira Campus of Art Building (a Victorian Style building, recently restored); The English Alley, where we can find the Red Cross Building and not long ago an blue house which was dismantled to be rebuilt elsewhere (as a Heritage recovery project by the school of architecture of a known University of Temuco), both Neoclassical styled.

Cerro Nielol

The Nielol Hill represents the original forest of the whole southern Chile area as it was before the Spanish people colonize it.It has also a special meaning for the Mapuche population.We can also find a restaurant at the top and a viewpoint of the east side of the city and Padre Las Casas,across the river.It is a "must" for visitors.The Southern Andean Volcano Observatory has its office there.
