  • A quick way to get up and down for 100 peso each way. The lifts are repaired frequently so despite looking scary they are very safe...  more »
  • The elevator is very cute, the trip is short, but experience is rich, they have a history that is part of our country, if you upload yourself with a wide variety of restaurants, cafés and typical colorful houses of the hills of Valpo, and if low the picture is a little more careless in the city, but full of interesting places to visit.

  • It's very cheap and it spends 2 minutes, if you don't want to go up by foot, it's a good choice and a great experience in a 100 yo elevator!
  • It's quick and cheap. It will also save you time and energy. Cost is $100 for one way, very cheap.
  • Best funicular in town
  • Good service. Beautiful surroundings, especially the square in front of the arrival at Uptown station.
