Landmark Tourist Spot
Ascend from the justice halls of Valparaiso to the top of charming Cerro Alegre with Ascensor El Peral. The recently renovated funicular was declared a national historical monument of Chile in 1998--recognition for the thousands of locals and visitors it has ferried up the hill over the years. Although you won't see a lot out of the windows on your way up, you can enjoy views over Valparaiso and the water from the top of the hill. Our Valparaiso trip itinerary maker makes visiting Ascensor El Peral and other Valparaiso attractions simple, and helps you make a travel plan personal to you.
