Ascensor Concepcion, Valparaiso

4.0
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.

  • Felt me an attraction so interesting and different from the rest I've known! Neither mention the view when you get to the end of the elevator!

  • Several lifts of Valpo are under repair. It is hoped that the work will be completed next year. In the meantime we can climb on foot, by bus or by collective (collective taxi very economic)

  • In February 2018, was staying close to the Ascensor Concepción and found it still closed for renovation. The work appeared extensive and looked like ict had some way to go.  more »

  • 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.
  • It so good
  • Currently closed for renovations, oct 2017.
  • 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.
  • Currently closed for renovations.
