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

Plaza Sotomayor was a quick 10 min walk from my hostal in Cerro Allegre. This is where you can pick up bussess, tours, and have access to the waterfront activities.

This is the starting point for Tours 4 Tips, an excellent tour that departs daily.

Plaza Sotomayor is the meeting point for Valparaiso´s free walking tour (Tips for Tours). It´s a great way to get to know the city and highly recommended as you get to learn about the histroy of the city and also which areas to avoid in Valparaiso. The guide also gives tips on places to eat, things to try and sites to visit.

Lovely architecture & great cafes, try Cafe Melbourne, waterfront views of fishing boats & ocean going vessels plus amazing to see how the countless stray dogs sleep on just the right part of the road so they don`t get run over

A huge street with European architecture along with a large monument dedicated to the heroes of Valparaiso. Need to watch out for traffic though...
