This is another mode of transportation within the historic district of Valparaíso. One can get from the base to the top of the hill in a short time at extremely reasonable pricing. Awesome views as well while getting up the hill.

This is a cute little ascensor which helps a little if you are struggling to get uphill. When you exit up on the cerro there is a large range of cafes and restaurants with great views.

An easy way to get down to the action in Valparaíso and only 100 peso. The coffee shop at the base of this ascensor serves great coffee at a very reasonable price.
A great, hisorical way to negotiate the hills

Worth having a go for P 100. Useful little rude and fun to experience old Valpariso and see the engineering.

We took the historic and aristocratic funicular elevator from the station Reina Victoria to go to the top of Valparaiso. All visitors should try the funicular elevator: it enables you to further explore the cultural wealth of the city; the ride is an amazing experience having seen the mechanism that operates it. Most importantly is the panoramic view you can from the top of this World Heritage City.

You have to do an Ascensor when you are in Valparaiso. Its only a 100 Chilean peso coin, so very cheap. You pay at the bottom and wit to ride in the car. Its a pretty sharp incline and its a fun way to experience something that the locals use every day. Plus if you start at the bottom and go to the top you don't have to walk up the hills.

Valparaiso has a number of these running up and down its hillsides and everyone is pretty happy to have them - the punishing hill walks would be a real pain otherwise.

The ascensors cost a nominal fee and carry you for about 90 seconds or so. But what's great is that they've stuck to the original 19th-century template as rigidly as possible, which makes for a uniquely rickety funicular ride.

Diverting and, for engineers, essential.

While in Valparaíso a ride up a funicular is a must-do. Make sure to bring some small change (most are 100 pesos, one is 300) as they won’t have change for small bills.

Gorgeous views and street art at the top, there is also a big metal slide at the top which is fun.

Take the cable car for 300clp to the old town where the buildings are brightly coloured and the graffiti art plentiful
Highly recommended
