The Cerro Caracol is a geographical landmark of Concepcion, Chile. At 80 meters high in some areas, this hill is known as the green lung of the city because of the large amount of flora and forests. Like a recreational area, it has been "merged" with the Ecuador Park located at the bottom. There are several hikes or paths you can take on foot or by car up to the top. Once you reach it, there is a kind of "oval" with benches surrounding it and in the center, ´the German lookout.´ It has great historical connotation in the city. It was built by Don Arturo Junge Sahr and funded by the German community living in the city in honor of the German chancellor Otto von Bismarck. This was the first monument in South America built in honor of this individual. It has two levels: the first is enclosed by an iron gate, and the second is the lookout which gives you a panoramic view of the city.
