One of the best views over the Valparaiso bay over to Viña del Mar. Parking is a lttle bit difficult, and dog poo is on the street, be aware. Museum Naval is huge and interesting for people who like these stuff, descriptions also in English, but really Chilean naval history.

I was expecting so much more, but frankly it was the least interesting viewpoint in town. The path is very short, dirty, filled with cheap souvenir stands and offers a very boring view of shipping containers. The neighbourhood is bland, and the only thing of interest is the Naval Museum nearby. You’ll still go, but just make sure you visit... More

I suggest the elavator ride and down to reach this beautiful lookout. We went during the day and we went at night. During the day all the artesanal shops are open. Yet at night the view sparkles. Caution: I have been told by many locals that taking the stairway down is not recommended. Especially at night. Great spot for thieves.

It's the top of the ascensor. There are some shops around, but the big draw is the view of the harbor. Very nice.

We went to Valparaiso for the day and we found this landmark where you can have a great view of the port, the trucks loading the cargo, ships arriving and a partial but beautiful view of the city. In addition there is artisan market where you can buy something.

My partner and I elected to visit Valparaiso as a day trip from Santiago. We went to the terminal almada on the metro from Bellavista and paid around 7000C/P per person for return bus tickets on Turbus. We decided to do this independently and simply highlighted a series of viewpoints over the city in our small map in lonely planet.... More

This promenade is one of best places to see the new year night Valparaíso's spectacle. With cafe and shops with facilities (toilettes), Naval museums, handcraft expos and an "Artillería" elevator (from Aduana square) you certainly will enjoy the spectacular noise of the pirotechnical fires of new year. You may get up there by the mentioned elevator, walking up by Carampangue... More
