Museum of Villarrica
In this museum there are important archeological finds from the Neolithic age, various articles from the Mapuche culture such as pots, jewelry, hides etc, as well as documents used by the Spanish colonists.
Located at the shores of the lake, this is an ideal place to take photographs, go for a walk, and take in the unforgettable countryside, with the imposing Villarrica Volcano in the distance.
There are various handicrafts fairs all over the city. The one that stands out is the one located in Avenida Pedro de Valdivia on the corner with Aviador Acevedo, where you can see a Ruca (a Mapuche home) built with large reeds and junquillo, an exact replica of the ones you can still see these days in the Araucan countryside.

The plaza is located on its original site, although it has since been remodeled to better serve as a recreational and meeting point.
