I went to Chile a few months ago and I would come back. I really have a good time. There are many places to visit, is secure and the people there is very kind. There are a lot a shoppings and restaurants to visit. This park in particularly is beautiful and near are differents activities to do alone or with company. I recomend to visit, you won't regret it.

Plaza Sotomayor is the main square in Valparaíso with several historic buildings and monuments. Standing in the middle of the square gives a wonderful perception of the history. One will find several street vendors selling souvenir items. Certainly worth visiting when in Valparaíso.

We were on a city tour of Valparaiso and this was one of the stops....we actually spent about 45 minutes here learning the history of the plaza. The focus of the square is the monument that honors the Chilean sailors who fell during the Battle of Iquique and the Battle of Punta Gruesa. The plaza and surrounding buildings were designated a historic district on January 23, 1979. Of special note was learning the history of Captain Arturo Prat. The Intendencia de Valparaiso is currently the headquarters of the Chilean Navy. All in all is was worth a stop and very interesting.

Walk around the square slowly for a while and take in everything, then walk over to the seaport just a short block away and see the shops and small boats. Take a 1/2 hour ride in the Paciific if you like then have a drink upstairs at the Seaport bar. What a way to spend a 1/2 day or more. Best of all, you will have gotten a true feel for Valparaiso's beauty and the friendliness of its people.

You will probably run across this large plaza as you traverse Valparaiso. Many of the free walking tours start here. I especially liked the ones run by Ecomapu Travel which start at noon and 4pm Tuesday thru Sunday. Groups are smaller than with the other companies.

As a local, I can vehemently declare that there is no reason to visit this plaza unless you're looking for European-like tourism in Valpo. It would be a shame to waste your time snapping a few worthless photos at this plaza when Valpo has so much more to offer

Valparaiso is just a sad town, all in the past, with shabby remnants of one beautiful buildings. Here at least there is a beautiful monument and a lot of small shops round the corner

We stopped here as part of our bus tour, nothing really special, like the rest of Valparaiso, but interesting.
