Navy Building has very impressive architecture and stands out in Plaza Sotomayor. It serves as the administration headquarters of the Commander in Chief of the Chilean Navy. Certainly worth visiting.

Of course, it is always better to be standing at a building as your tour guide explains what it is and such.

Very interesting history here if you get a chance to read upon it. This building certainly stands out in the port area and worth viewing.

On the day I visited Valparaiso they were setting up for some large event and Plaza Sotomayor was full of scaffolding which made getting an unobstructed picture or view of the Navy building a bit difficult. The building is beautiful, i'm not sure if you can enter, i didn't try but its color and style are part of Valpo's charm. It stands proud on the Plaza and you are likely to see it if you visit, even if you just walk by. With so much visual splendor in this town, it's easy for such a building to blend in or get glossed over.

This building is tastefully painted and well maintained. I would love to have gone inside and seen the inevitable photos of warships past and present. As it was I just took a couple fromthe quayside

Nice building located in the modern Plaza Sotomayor, well kept facade, nice architecture, quite recent. The square has an underground parking and is the ideal place to start a city tour with the close by Peral lift.

Of all the imposing buildings in Valparaiso, the naval academy really does stand out. It's blue and white decor and sheer size makes it unmissable on Plaza Sotomayor. Not sure if you can actually go inside as it was closed on the weekend I was here.

We saw this building as it was dominating the skyline in that part of the town. It stand real tall in the square right behind the statue. Well worth stopping by.
