  • Ascensores are one of the best "Must See" of Valparaíso, besides Street Art. When we look to the rails, cabin and cables it's a little bit frightening but it's a "must travel". We ride on some, day or...  more »
  • This elevator leads up the viewpoint of Paseo 21 de Mayo at cerro Playa Ancha, a short but rich walk where tourists have a look at the movement of the port of Valparaíso. This was the third Funicular as we say here in Valparaiso and was inaugurated in January 1893. I highly recommend the trip.

  • for me is what offers the best view of Valparaíso at the end of the climb many shops, restaurants and the Maritime Museum to visit, if you have little time to go in this, you can descend on foot after.
