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.
