You have to go see the ovejero statues here in Coyhaique. A lot of poeple who come to Coyhaique get a picture done with them. They recently re-did the whole park and it is really nice. Your kids will enjoy playing on the playground.

With historical reasons, this monument is great for a picture and would be great for children to visit. It is not too far from the square either.

This small monument is recognized worldwide, so go grab a selfie! The place is well cared for, and will always be a nice stop.

Monument built in 1944 to the shepherds who tend to sheep in this part of Chile. During the summer, the monument is surrounded by a large number of rose bushes.
