This gives you access to lots of lovely restaurants and bars. Great views of the town too. One of the more expensive ascensors, about 30p!

We took the ascensor at the conception hill and paid 300 pesos (each) one way up hill (they charge the same on coming down at this station). The views of the colourful hills around the harbour are intermittent, but the street art and interesting architecture in the surrounding streets is worth seeing. Roaming around the narrow, winding streets is also... More

Colourful, busy (with tourists) streets with sme interesting shops, galleries and restaurants. The ascensor's are a useful bonus in making your way around the area.

The murals in houses and buildings are interesting, some very good and others displaying a strange psychology. Its lovely to walk around, get a view from the terraces and a short trip up or down the 'ascensores'

Colourful houses with traditional design and picturesque streets with arty shops. Wonderful views from the top. Get the fernicular to the top ($100CLP=£0.1) and walk down.

Cerro Concepcion was listed as one of the top activities for Valparaiso Chile, but I was kind of disappointed. The restaurants there targeted tourists, and the prices reflected it. I prefer a local experience, but Cerro Concepcion is the opposite of that. A lot of strays roam the streets, so watch your step! Maybe I picked a bad day to... More

Basically every cerro, or hill, in Valpo has a killer view. Get there via stairs or fernicular, and make sure that you bring a camara to document the view. Most of the cerros have touristy things to buy at the top. The ferniculars cost about $100 CLP (Chilean pesos; about 15 cents USD) one-way.
