  • Old elevator that works very well. and that leads up the Hill. It's then easier to descend than to walk up. Very economical too.

  • The elevator is very nice, in very good condition and worth Queuing for their climb. Once at the top of the cerro concepcion, Valparaiso view is very beautiful. It is a place where there are many bars and the Museum of the Palace Barburiza. Spectacular!

  • Just renovated keeps an old, traditional feel. Gets you direct to the "Palacio Baburizza” museum. The entrance at the lower level is kind of hidden, it looks like a normal Valparaiso passage, but the group of tourist outside may give you a hint.
  • Very cheap (100 pesos) and a great view from the plaza at the top. A great way to get to Palacio Baburizza and a lot of wall art on surrounding streets at the top.
  • Shorter than expected but very vertical, worth the 100 Chilean Pesos ($0.16 USD)each way. Grab a snack at MM450 at the top delicious food
  • Amazing views and speedy access to the top of the hill
  • Very good experience in Valparaíso
