What to do in Osorno, Patagonia Chile

Places to visit in the city

The Mirador of Rahue, at the end of the avenue República, where in clear days the volcanos can be seen in the horizon and from where one has a full hearing of the city and the river.
The wooden houses of the XIX century of the street Mackenna, declared National Monument, where one will be able to appreciate the architecture of the German colonists.
The Cattle Fair of Osorno. Just in the mornings. It is the biggest domestic and the experience of attending the auctions of the animals is very interesting.
To the Pacific: crossing the coast mountain range, there are 140 round trip kilometers that will allow you to visit Bahía Mansa, a creek of fishermen in a very rural bay. Continuing toward the south will arrive to Maicolpué, a white sands spa surrounded by hills with summer houses. It has restaurants and hostels. From the crossing of Bahía Mansa toward the north, skirting the river Contaco, you will arrive at the spa Pucatrihue, with a beach that extends among the outlet of the rivers Contraco and Choroy Traiguén.
To the Franciscan missions:
They were installed in territory Huilliche-Mapuche in the XVIII century and they continue assisted today by Dutch missionary priests. One is that of ‘San Juan de la Costa’ toward the west of Osorno and the other one in the village of Quilacahuín, skirting the river Rahue toward the northwest. In the first one there are artisans that carry out a ‘boqui’ basketwork (a long and strong climbing) very original.
Osorno is in a strategic place (Pan-American route and international highway to Villa La Angostura in Argentina), from where they can be carried out different trips to the lakes Ranco, Puyehue, Rupanco and Llanquihue; that to be very important in themselves, we describe them when we speak in particular of them or of some city in its riversides.
