Ascensor Artilleria, Valparaiso

4.3
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 ...).

  • 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
