Throughout the history of this Port City, the inhabitants saw the possibility of being located on this hill that was born as a fort to protect themselves from pirats and corsairs. When the port sector zone was almost completely occupied, the...more

Concepcion - at the top of the recently renovated and currently free in April Concepcion ascenseur, was our fav Cerro in Valpo. Great street art, Jazz cafes and some cool bars and little artsy shops.

It´s hard to be in Valparaíso and miss this one - it´s the tourist heart of the city with a myriad of narrow alleys and street art. I could spend hours walking around and watch the life goes by but couple of hours will do...More

One of the highlights of Valparaiso. Stunning views over the harbour but the real attraction is the variety of architecture and colourful art. The area is a maze of astonishing murals and street art, with an incredible diversity in style of buildings. Some of the...More

Coming from the harbour side the logical choice to start your visit here would be to take the Ascensor by the same name, here in Valpo the Cerro is perhaps best described as a defined Hill or higher piece of land. Conception is bounded basically...More

If you wish a place for great views, good restaurants and small, eclectic stores and lots of fun wall art, this is the place to go. If you are in Valparaiso, if only for a few hours, this should one of your destinations.

This hill is quite nice. It is one of the most famous and worth to walk around. Graffiti that can be found there are quite remarkable. View is also good.

I took a nice Sunday stroll through the old neighborhood. A “must do” if you are a lover of street art.

The cerro is quite nice. Here is where the free walking tours are held so it must be the highlight of the city. If you can get a hostel here do it.

Probably the best thing to do in town. The view from there is nice, the street art and the buildings.

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.
