Leaving for Chile
Concepción Travel guide
Concepción : Michelin's recommendations
Situated at the mouth of the Río Biobío, Concepción marks the end of the Valle Central and the beginning of Southern Chile, and Araucania, the heartland of the Mapuche. Traditionally left-wing, it is a busy industrial city with its own university. Note the Presencia de América Latina fresco by Jorge González Camarena in the Casa del Arte.
