Our tour bus stopped some 300 metres from this lookout and we walked downhill along a narrow street, past a funicular, National Maritime Museum, houses with the usual graffiti, dog poop on the sidewalk and roadway and then we arrived. Great views of the port...More

One of the city's most charming features is a series of 15 funiculars built between 1883 and 1916 to transport citizens up the steep hills surrounding the waterfront. It's about 25 cents to take one up to this promenade for very good views of the...More

Not really sure why people recommend this town for visit as it is rather dull. The sea side is just a port and I can't say seeing cargo being loaded onto ships is that exciting to me.

Luckily our Hostel was just around the corner from here so we didn't have to walk much to reach it but the views are stunning! Highly recommended

Nice little walking stroll to visit history and the port of Valparaiso from top. Lots of folks selling local arts and murals at descent price. Parking is a headache even for the tour guide.

this location grants you a view over the port that is unparalleled. The paseo has this cute outdoor craft market [I always get stuff here]. And there are great coffee shops and restaurants nearby.
