    Probably not to recommend in dark. Otherwise wild area filled with raucous port workers and dozens of wild dogs. About half fall but you keep charm and want to restore ws (see photo of ruins with steel falls)

    This historical place that has been one of the main ports of South America. Like other sites and m Valparaiso a lot of color and graffiti without much visual pollution. With the guide was pom because we know a little more of the local stories. Interesting.

    Beautiful buildings of frenzied architecture, not many, but you look your eyes out and there is plenty of entertainment and live with shops, restaurants and bars
