Ascensor Concepcion, Valparaiso

(4.1/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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. Put Ascensor Concepcion into our Valparaiso vacation planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Valparaiso.

  • It is an excellent alternative for those who want to explore the Concepción Hill, leaves you in paseo gervasoni, and from there you can follow along. Also very cheap

  • Our guide just happened to include this in our tour. Took < 5 minutes and was dirt cheap. It is probably a worthwhile stop to get a flavor of how folks get around this hilly city.  more »

  • 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.
  • Unique experience
  • Worth a look!
