Ascensor Artilleria, Valparaiso

4.0
Ascensor Artilleria has been transporting visitors to a lookout for views of the city and the bay for over 100 years. This funicular is one of 16 that run from the city to the top of Artilleria hill. First operational in 1893, this centuries-old funicular is a historic landmark in the city, giving visitors a feel for the area’s history. Take the 80-second ride up to the top to take advantage of the views of ships in the harbor. At the top, stalls selling crafts and souvenirs let you do some shopping with a view. A visit to Ascensor Artilleria represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Valparaiso road trip tool to plot your vacation.

  • The cable cars are part of the culture of Valparaiso. It's worth to choose one of them and walk around at least to meet! It's super simple and very popular price. Worth the visit! =)

  • Ascension is fast, but the view is not so great. We find all the Chilean memories to bring up on a shaded place.

  • This is the best view of Valparaíso (which is not a city beautiful, but ... does the trick ...).
