Ascensor Concepcion, Valparaiso

3.9
Built in 1883, Ascensor Concepcion serves as the city’s oldest elevator and a national monument. This funicular, which was originally steam powered, still carries passengers up a steep hill from the commercial district to the Paseo Gervasoni sector. Keep your camera out during the ascent to get photos of the city and the bay of Valparaiso. Be sure to spend time at the top exploring the city’s hippest scene, where murals decorate the sides of funky cafes and eclectic shops. A visit to Ascensor Concepcion represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Valparaiso vacation site to plot your vacation.

    Impossible not to get moved to another century. It is an oil experience, to walk by these brilliant boards, very low price, and with the smoothness that this elevator. It is easily accessible, and comprehensive in its access. View accompanies, but it is short... If it comes to Valparaiso, be sure to enjoy this trip... Aroma of history!

    for elevator access, always have pieces of 100 pesos per person. The view from the top is really nice which allows you walk after the slopes .... Visit tb Plaza Bismark.

    This is the oldest Ascensor. Built in 1883. It's also the shortest and the priciest ($300). Recommend either get up from Ascensor Reina Victoria & down from this one.

    This was one of the shortest rides. Nice addition to the trip around Valpariso looking at the graffiti. I would not make a trip out just for this.
