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.

  • We went to Concepcion which is kind of an inclined plane that serves basically as transportation from uptown to downtown. The view is quite nice and cheap price.

  • El.primer elevator that is think in Valparaiso since was one of those who had more population in first instance. It must be paid with cash.

  • Worth a look!
  • Buena opción para subir al cerro
  • I expected more tourism ambient
