  • Beautiful way to see one of the amazing parts of Valpo. This is just one of the many walks you can do, but definitely do this one as well. It also shows you some of the industrial sides of the city.
  • This place describes best what Valparaiso is. Use the funicular railway to get to up the hill.Fascinating sightseeing to the harbor.
  • Best view of Valparaiso Port. Lots of souvenir shops. Try the Night view that will blow you away

  • Beautiful view of the port
