  • While the view going up isn't very exciting, for 300clp a person, it's still worth the ride -- the views from the top are excellent!  more »

  • Years back I have been on a bicycle tour throughout Chile. Some days I spent at Valparaiso. Isn't it the city of Cabrillo the seafarer? Interesting environment. Good scenic views. I remember when I have been touring around, what a lady said to me: "you came down this hill? Which road you have taken?". I pointed on it and she replied: "this is a safe road. One road further and you wouldn't​' be here"... See pictures! Nevertheless a must see place.
  • It's a bit more rickety than others, but it's one of the longest rides and biggest cars. I love these in Valpo!
  • Nice view of city, waterfront and the ascensor. Pay to ride up and then walk down the nearby street.
  • Built in 1893, this ascensor is the longest and most pictured. The twin ascensores take you to/from Plaza Aduana & Paseo 21 de Mayo then you can head to Museo Maritime Nacional. Lots of souvenir shops and great view. $300 one way
  • Pretty view
