Located near Chile's Lake District along the Bio Bio River next to the Pacific coast, Concepción is Chile's second-largest city and one of the country's main ports. An industrial centre as well as the home of an important naval base, Concepción was founded by the Spanish in 1550 as a military outpost and has long played a vital role in Chile's economic, political and cultural growth. Despite the city's long history, Concepción is a modern city and travellers on cheap holidays to Concepción don't see much in the way of typical Spanish colonial buildings: several earthquakes throughout its history required the city to be rebuilt at various times.
Concepción forms a vital part of Chile's Lake District and serves as a gateway to this beautiful region that's rich with deep blue mountain lakes, snow-capped volcanoes, verdant forests, traditional folklore and handicrafts.
