Fantastic street art, from tiny drawings to characters covering three storey buildings, and the colours amazing, most of the houses are painted bright colours as there was no house numbers, your address was the Orange house on such and such a street, makes for a colourful district, we were also warned not to venture out of this area, so just...

The street art is Valparaiso is extraordinaire. Actually, it's the best "Street Art" that I have ever experienced. You will be in awe at every twist and turn. The art is everywhere. In small twists and turns and in large displays. It's all there. Plus, the colorful paint of the buildings bring life to the area, and it's a joy... More

This terrace overlooking the bay of Valparaiso, is part of the historic hotel of Gervasoni. Excellent ceviche made fresh to order. Good ginger lemonade.

Get the camera ready and marvel at the colours and variety of works that can be seen.The hike up the various alleys and slopes keep the senses alert. The buildings that seem to evolve from those hills are a testament to perseverance.

If you have a short period to visit Valparaiso, make this one your first stop. Yes, it is a tourist attraction, hence trimmed and painted unlike many other of Valparaiso's areas. You don't see the poverty here. Yet, it is as autentique as it gets. People still lives here, uses the centuries old elevator, and dine at its cafes. This... More

This passage had interesting views of the docks and usually artisan stalls. The highlight is the museum of the cartoonist Lukas. Despite my Spanish being a bit basic I loved this as the cartoons themselves communicated what Lukas was trying to say.

We have been especially to valparaiso to see the colorful houses. We walked to 2 mirador and have been pretty disappointed with what we saw. However, this quarter of the city was beautiful and we enjoyed it a lot. All the painting and colorful stairs makes it a very special place that has to be seen. It is located just... More

This is one of my favorite places in Valparaiso. It's easy to get - walking or Ascensor Polanco-, great views of the sea, art and cafe. Go on a sunny day!
