    Villarrica and seven lakes district

    January 8, 2015 in Chile ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    We had two options where to spend the night, either Pucon, renown town in the Chilean seven lakes district, or Villarrica.
    Of course Isa's family would immediately understand why we chose to stay in Villarrica.
    (There's also a town in Colombia named Villarrica, which happens to be Isa's mom parents town, where they grew up and raised their family).
    But this one is one of the oldest town yet almost totally renovate due to earthquakes and as soon as you get closer to the region you know why everyone loves it!
    A 2840mt volcano by a crystal-clear lake named Villarrica or beautiful town in Mapundun, the Mapuches language.
    And we didn't miss the chance to enjoy like the locals in a sunny-summer Sunday, having a picnic by one of the lakes and also go to the "geometric" thermas; a nicely design pools dredged into the volcano with icy cold pools and hot waters of almost 85• Celsius!
    Woww, we couldn't even resist 39•!!
