    This walk stopped being a bit boring. Ten years ago, the only attraction was to observe the movements of loading and unloading... Now several players complement each other perfectly, we have almost 50 meters from all kinds of souvenirs, crafts, etc. Kiosks, restaurants, the naval museum, which is really beautiful, and cherry it is the view of the sea. I have to admit that a captivating experience will live, it has that magnetism that keeps you in silence, I calm, quiet... You have to know and live this moment...

    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.
