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.

  • The town elevator is very usefull - when in operation. I visit Valparaiso every year so I have used it often. Unill it opens again in 2018 El Peral can be used. But it is a bit hard to reach this one ...  more »
  • Although the Ascensor Concepcion is currently restaurariert, the rise in the picturesque streets is still interesting! If you leisurely runs up and no time pressure is also not so exhausting, there's on the way up enough art to admire!

  • The trip lasts two minutes but is very cute, can be the mechanism of the elevator for more than 100 years of antiquity. Wood, beautiful cabin.

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