I purchased this condo in Rancagua because it has become one of the nation’s most important agricultural hubs, especially for fruit and wine-growing plus mining is also a major industry here therefore visitors can be close to all of these areas of interest. It also serves as a comfortable place to stay to some of my tour visitors.
Centrally located, close to shopping and restaurants and main highways. Private and secure location.
