  • Description


    Hi, my name is Manuel, I'm married and I have two children who live in
    Temuco, regional capital of Araucanía. I have a forestry farm and I work in the fields.
    I live in Purén and the property is located 500 meters from the town center. Purén is located at the foot of the Nahuelbuta Mountain Range where there is a National Forest Reserve Park and Lake Lanalhue, as well as several rivers, which makes it very attractive for people who like to camp, hike and hike, fish, swim, etc. One of the interesting aspects of the town is its cultural diversity where you can get to know the Mapuche culture, its crafts, its gastronomy and way of life.

    Temuco, capital regional de la Araucanía. Tengo un predio agrícola forestal y me dedico a labores del campo.

Purén está ubicado a los pies de la Cordillera de Nahuelbuta donde se encuentra un Parque Reserva Nacional Forestal y el lago Lanalhue, además de diversos ríos, por lo cual es muy atractivo para las personas que gustan de acampar , realizar caminatas y senderismo, pescar, nadar, etc. Uno de los aspectos interesantes del pueblo es su diversidad cultural donde podrán conocer la cultura mapuche, su artesanía, su gastronomía y forma de vida .
