A city full of history and nostalgia

A city full of history and nostalgia, an urban and architectonic curiosity, and a never founded city:
The city was built spontaneously by its inhabitants going up the hills slopes.
The houses look like colourful clusters that challenge gravity and vertigo.
Valparaiso is a natural bay surrounded by a cordilleran mountain chain that leads to the sea, making an amphitheatre loocking at the Pacific.
Valparaiso has an interesting night life, where you can take a tour along mythical places where you take a coffee or a drink wine with friends of the poetry, the cinema, boleros and tangos.

Curious funiculars

Visitors shouldn't miss to have a look at the elevators - they are really an attraction: Curious funiculars that go up and down the hills, intruding into backyards of houses along their route.
There are still 15 elevators operating, taking the inhabitants of the centre to their neighbourhoods. A journey in one of these elevators will provide you marvellous views of the bay and the sea.

Market places

In these places, in the mixture of smells, typical flavours, the continuous shouting of the salesmen; you can buy fresh fruits and vegetables and even all kind of agricultural products, fish and seafood.
