Villarrica

Villarrica

On the southwest shore of Lago Villarrica, 86km southwest of Temuco, Villarrica is a quieter and cheaper alternative to nearby Pucon but not nearly as much fun. Founded in 1552, the town was repeatedly attacked by Mapuche until treaties were signed in 1882. The Museo Historico-Arquelogico Municipal, next to the tourist office, displays Mapuche jewelry, musical instruments and rough-hewn wooden masks. Behind the tourist office, the Feria Artesanal has a selection of crafts and traditional Mapuche food.
