Wulff Castle, Vina del Mar

A stone, medieval-style castle built right on the shores of the Pacific Ocean, Wulff Castle pairs striking architecture with scenic surroundings. The castle was built in 1906 as a private project for German businessman and philanthropist, Gustavo Adolfo Wulff Mowte. In the years following Wulff’s death, the castle has hosted many institutions, such as a maritime museum, a library museum, a sea culture museum, and municipal offices; today it is a national historical monument. Many visitors are drawn to the site for the backdrop it provides for coastal photos. You’ll get the best views from the lookout point next to the castle. Planning Vina del Mar trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • A small castle. This is the reality of one of the main sights of the city. His location allows a cool view of the edge, both of Viña, Valparaíso. On cloudy days, as the day I was there, it's not that interesting, but can you imagine what it would be like in a beautiful and sunny day. We were going to watch it. I advise you to cross over to the side of the rim still on the clock, because then it gets hard and the sidewalk has stretches well narrow and dangerous.
