This area feels like the heart and soul of Valparaiso - cafes, small independent galleries, and above all, fabulous street art.

This is a lovely place to enjoy German, French and British architecture as well as ride the oldest funicular in Valparaiso - which opened 1883. Wear good walking shoes as some streets have large cobblestones.

Conception Hill, as it is known in English, is one of the many hill districts that make up Valparaíso and is one of the eight that are considered part of the historic quarter, which was designated as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 2003. These old streets are paved in rugged cobblestone and many of them have become rundown with... More

Great views, interesting artwork on the walls. Nice restaurants. A great place to visit and safe too if you are sensible. THE place to be in Valparaiso at the moment. Central to most things plus the oldest funicular in town (1883).

Definitely spend an afternoon strolling around here. Admire the views and the shops. Have a drink and a meal. You are in Valparaiso to experience its two incredible hills.

The graffiti is eating this city. It is impossible to find one wall that does not have graffiti. What is it? There is not art in ugliness. It is sad to see so many beautiful buildings and they are all impregnated with graffiti.

This is the most beautiful cerro of Valparaíso. It's touristy, but still has a lot of Valparaíso charm. Good views and nice for strolling!

Take Ascensor Concepcion, the city's oldest (1883) funicular, to a pretty promenade that overlooks the city. Called Paseo Gervasoni, it accesses several historic buildings amidst a profusion of flowering vines and vendors. The neighborhood contains many brightly-colored houses made from corrugated sheet metal and several historic churches.
