  • 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,

  • The city of Valparaiso with their House of singular architecture is a beautiful place. The narrow streets and steep hills to climb make the city a provincial place. No wonder it is one of the world heritage sites of UNESCO.
