Nothing really recommendable to visit. You can skip it without a doubt. They charge per person for entrance.

From this viewpoint you can see the winding Rio Chile flow from a far bend and past you until it again disappears downstream in a turn. The river has a background of beautiful mountains. Well worth the trip.

Clear views of the mountains and surrounding farmland. The first stop on our tour so luckily we didn't walk it like some of the others.
