  • Historical city declared a world heritage site. With very precarious and colorful houses on the edge of the mountain. The road has great curves product that goes up on the mountain. Humble but picturesque place. At first sight impression that generates is Basil in a favella.

  • 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.

Since its inscription on the World Heritage List in 2002, Valparaiso tourism has experienced a meteoric rise. The city now offers a wide range of accommodations, especially budget hostels and mid-range hotels and inns. Cerro Alegre, a hill just to the west of the city center, offers perhaps the largest range of options and looks out over the bustling port.
