Great location to have a nice view of the surround and the harbour. Learning about the culture, the area and how resident go about their daily lives. Do not forget to take the cable car ride, quiet a experience. Would spend a few days here to explore more if I come again. Only here on a day tour.

As part of our transfer from the Celebrity Infinity to Santiago by South Excursions, we were led by our tour guide Camila through this beautiful neighborhood in our exploration of Valparaiso. A must see of narrow meandering streets, a rainbow of colorful wall art, beautiful architecture and a commanding view of the ocean and city. Worthy of a stop.

It's a beautiful neighborhood with lots of little shops and restaurants. Great wall art done by some well-known grafetti artists.

While Chile certainly is a country of unique cultural and natural riches its cities are not necessarily among the main reasons to travel to this remote country from Europe. While this statement holds true for many of the other bigger cities of the country I've seen, the Cerro Concepcion and nearby Cerro Allegre do stand out for themselves as a... More

We had a great time getting lost in the hills of Cerro Concepcion. A beautiful area full of interesting shops and restaurants. I would highly recommend staying in a hostel or hotel in this area.

This hill provides great views of the port and there are many outdoor vendors, restaurants, and tourist shops there. It is also a crossroad and you can meet many fellow travelers there.

This was the highlight of our visit to South America. It was literally like walking through a museum. The views from the hill are extraordinary and the art is everywhere. If you walk too fast you are likely to miss something. Check out the small studios that sell local art.

A nice mellow neighbourhood in Santiago. A showcase for urban art, great restaurants and friendly people. My favourite part of Chile so far.

NO ES SEGURA PARA LOS TURISTAS. Los lanzas/ladrones te siguien y esperan la ocasion para robarte. a mi me asaltaron de una forma violenta en cerro artilleria. Los carabinieros me dicieron q Valpo es una de las ciudades mas peligrosas de chile y los robos son cada vez mas. Hay q ir solo en las zonas mas turisticas, no llevar nada de valor, vigilar mucho. Me tiraron al suelo, imobilizar con un pie y me pusieron un cuchillo a lado de la barriga a las 10:30 de la mañana. Tuve la mala suerte q en aquel momento no pasaba nadie en la calle. yo y mi hermano estabamos un poco alejado del museo naval y ibamos en direccion de la plaza Wellright. Las callejuelas son peligrosas. Mi relato en ingles: Unfortunally, my experience in Valparaiso was very bad. My brother is living in Santiago de Chile and we decided to go to Valparaiso by ourselves. We took the Ascensor Artillería at 10:30 a.m. From there we went to the Naval and maritime museum.

Our mistake was decided to go by walk to the others turistic places.

so we started to walk and then after 15-20 minutes we were robbed violently.

2 men started to run in our direction, the biggest who was also the leader tried to take my bag and snatch my bag. I was stronger than him. So He threw me on the floor, I was immobilized with a foot and he pulled out a switchblade knife. I saw the knife close to my belly and I was ready to receive the knife. I closed my eyes and I got peed on. My brother was with the other guy who was short and thin and asked for the money/la Plata to a meter away. My brother gave the wallet with 200.000 chilean pesos and all documents and credit card. He was able to hide the I-phone 6 (the price is around 800 Eur). he didn´t tried to help me. My brother told me to stop to tighten the purse/the bag. I did it and the man took my bag which contain the samsung S3, sony zt3 waterproof, a small canon camera (value around 60 Eur) and 110.000 chilean pesos. We were on a Cerro/Hill very close to a square with a checkpoint police (carabinieros). we made the complaint of theft which took a lot of time. The police was very very lazy. Then we went to the police office by car to finish to declair. We lost all the money and we asked to the police some money to return to santiago. They gave the money and we made the transfer the following day. The police told us that Valpairaiso is getting the most dangerous city of Chile. The tourists has to go there with a Tour or if they walk alone, the have to go only in the most touristic places. Sometimes the Lanzas/thieves start to follow the tourist and await the opportunity to rob. It a pity that this beautiful city is so unsafe. The police told us that some people who comes to Valparaiso to give the recognition as a UNESCO heritage of humanity were also robbed. Be careful.
