    A colorful city that conveys joy by their colors. When I went to was pretty cold but that doesn't stop met its streets, staircases and full color trade.

    Valparaiso Center very dirty, unattractive port with poor-quality tents products, toilets and bad care. Climb the elevator overlooking the Harbor, painted houses and pinchadas, with so many stairs to discourage. I couldn't visit the home of Pablo Neruda through time, only the acquis which is in front. I wouldn't ride again, in addition to exhausting what you find discourages another visit.

    I recommend that all the walk through the city is with a good walk so you can appreciate the wonderful buildings of the city,
