Valparaiso

 

Valparaíso is a city of around 300,000 on the Pacific coast of Central Chile.

It’s World Heritage Site status is based on its colonial old town, representing an excellent example of late 19th-century urban and architectural development in Latin America.

In its natural amphitheatre-like setting, the city is characterized by a vernacular urban fabric adapted to the hillsides that are dotted with a great variety of church spires.

The city has well preserved its interesting early industrial infrastructures, such as the numerous ‘elevators’ on the steep hillsides.

There is also an active nightlife and a constantly changing variety of artistic events.

The city is widely known for its bohemian culture, brightly coloured houses, and beautiful seaside views.

Visiting Valparaíso has less to do with touring specific sites than it is about roaming the chaotic, hilly streets, and taking in the views and ambiance.

Unusual Local Feature

Ascensores

Going to Valparaíso and not going on the ascensores (inclines) is like going to Venice and not taking a ride on a Gondola, only that the ascensores cost as little as 300 Chilean Pesos (around 55 US cents). They are also of practical use as they help many local people get to the higher parts of town, saving them from having to walk otherwise long and steep pedestrian routes.
Ascensor & Cerro Polanco
is the only vertical ascensor in the city. The hill held the first latin american graffitti festival in October 2012 and now boasts over 70 murals and graffitti pieces.
