This is a nice walk to one of Valparaiso most prominent hills, Playa Ancha. It is fun if you take the old lift from la Aduana, then walk around a street with art crafts and a super view of the bay. There is also the...More

This walkway offers a craft market and views of the harbor, i would imagine the sunset views would be impressive as well. I find the views from the other side of Valparaiso to be a little more scenic outside of the signature blue house on...More

There isn't really a lot here, but the funicular is interesting, 100 years old. The area has a few cafes, restaurants and shops. There is a small market selling usual tourist stuff. The view is over the bay and pretty good, although directly below is...More

This viewpoint might be a bit overrated. The point itself is nice with some shops and handicraftmarket, but the view itself is towards the harbour and the ( clear )views towards the city very limited. Best attraction might be the funicularride up and it might...More

You go up the tram, take a look around on the promenade, admire the view, and come back down. No reason to hang around.

We to the Ascensor up to the mirador. The view was great, and fun to watch the port...loading and unloading the ships. The market at the top was fun of the usual tourist stuff, but we found some souvenirs at good prices. The walk down...More

A nice view from the top.....if there was not the industrial port. A bit disappointing, very commercial spot. One can walk down to come back to town

I love this elevator because it really has the best view of the Port of Valparaiso. Although is really pretty you have to make sure you go during daytime and you have to be really careful with your belongings. There's a really good crafts market...More
