Valparaíso / Viña del Mar

Valparaiso, the most important port of Chile, is a place to experience. There is not an official version of the number of hills that surround the Valparaiso bay; it is said that 42. In each one of them there are hundreds of houses of different colors that make up a giant labyrinth of alleys, long stairways and viewpoints. Hills and sea are the natural limits of Valparaiso, while in its town center you can appreciate beautiful architectonic sets, narrow streets and some trolleybuses. Declared a World Heritage Site by Unesco in the year 2003, its geography has been populated since then of restaurants and bookstores that have renewed the classic and bohemian character of the city. Even so endures culture of the harbor, the main livelihood of this historic city, which is visible especially in the neighborhood of the port.

The area of the Valley of Colchagua, word that means “place of small lagoons”, is rich in traditions and cultures, a very interesting place to visit. Historically it was part of the Inca Empire and later became the place chosen by important families of Chile to build large country houses, some of which are still standing. The Colchagua is another of the transverse valleys of the central zone of Chile, whose lands are bathed by the waters of the Tinguiririca river, and where are located the towns of San Fernando and Santa Cruz, two of the most important cities of the region, and also some localities of great tourist interest, as Chimbarongo, Lolol or Pichilemu.
