  • Nice view of Valparaíso, with good places to buy souvenirs. Must visit place.

  • From the observation deck, also from different angles like Valparaiso sea and city views. Where goods are sold at souvenir shops near the Observatory's? and what seems like there.

  • It's amazing the view of the Bay of Valparaiso. Is in the so-called Cerro Artilleria. If you climb on foot, by car or by the funicular (always full). In addition, there is the National Maritime Museum – which deserves to be visited and a handicraft and other souvenirs, man, dollar prices.
