ABOUT Valparaíso

Valparaíso is the capital of the Valparaíso Region, being one of the most important tourist destinations in Chile. Less than two hours away from Santiago, it is the headquarters of the National Congress, the Chilean Navy, the National Council of Culture and the Arts, among other state institutions.

The city of Valparaíso was the first commercial port in the country and has been declared in 2003 as a "Cultural Heritage City of Humanity" by Unesco mainly for its invaluable architectural wealth. The city grew spontaneously along the 45 hills that compose it. In its picturesque and colorful streets, you can find hundreds of stairs, funiculars and its characteristic architecture always in bright and vibrant colors, that make this an unique place in the world. It’s an spectacle for the beautiful views of its bay that can be seen from its viewpoints such as Portales, Esperanza, O'Higgins and Marina Mercante or from the Paseo 21 de Mayo, Yugoslavo, Gervasoni and Atkinson and Dimalow that at New Year's time are full of people waiting to see and enjoy the beautiful pyrotechnic show of the city that runs along the entire coastline from Valparaíso, passing through Viña del Mar, Reñaca and reaching Concón.

The city is recognized as an important economic center of the country, with high tourist activity, a unique cultural heritage and because some of the most prestigious universities in the country are here, such as the Pontificia Universidad Católica de Valparaíso, la Universidad de Valparaíso, Universidad Técnica Federico Santa María y la Universidad de Playa Ancha, which are a great example of the university life of the city.

It is considered a natural amphitheater because it is located in a bay surrounded by hills where a large part of the population is concentrated. Among its main tourist attractions are the tours of Cerro Alegre and Cerro Concepción where you can appreciate the English-style architecture of the place and some of the most beautiful murals that brighten its streets. Also on Cerro Polanco you can see the work of different artists and climb the only vertical elevator in the city open to the public. The Open Sky Museum located on the Bellavista hill with 20 murals by renowned world-famous artists such as Roberto Matta also stands out.

Something characteristic of the city are its elevators that allow to climb the hills of the city at a very low cost and of which 16 of them were declared National Historical Monuments. Some of them are the elevator: Barón, el Peral, Polanco, Concepción, among others. In addition to this, its trolleybuses, electric public transport vehicles that run through the city plan, stand out.
