Ascensor Concepcion, Valparaiso
(4.1/5 based on 550+ 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.
