Geography

Laguna Redonda is located about 1 kilometre (0.62 mi) of distance of the River Biobío, on the west of the hill Chepe and the northwest at of the Laguna Lo Galindo. The name "Redonda" is due to its circular shape, with an average diameter of 207 metres (226 yd).

History

At the beginning of the 20th century, the lagoon was the halfway between Concepción and Talcahuano. It was part of the tram that worked between 1908 and 1941. In that period, the lagoon was surrounded by golf courses of the British colony, and by several fundos and quintas that provided to the local industry raw materials.

Today is located in Lorenzo Arenas, a sector in the city of Concepción.
