Valparaiso is an enchanting and bohemian city, which is characterised by its many ‘elevators’ that tirelessly climb and descend the cities slopes which are dotted with picturesque multi coloured buildings, each of which command a view of its pretty harbour.  Nominated a world heritage site in 2003, this curiously beautiful city is well worth a visit.

OUR FAVOURITE THINGS TO DO IN VALPARAISO

ECHAURREN SQUARE

This is Valparaiso’s first square. Its origin is colonial, and square is surrounded by old buildings, such as the Mercado Puerto (Port Market), the De La Matriz Church, the Ascensor Cordillera

ANIBAL PINTO SQUARE

Known for its narrow alleyways that surround it and the mixture of old and new buildings, as well as Neptune’s Fountain, this square is well worth a visit.  From here you can begin the climb of Mts. Concepcion and Alegre

O'HIGGINS SQUARE

This is the ideal place for those who seek strange items from bygone times, because it is the site of the traditional La Merced flea-market of books and antiques, full of items such as sea chests, mirrors and early gramophones, among other relics of olden days.

SAN LUIS CHURCH

Building of this church was started on August 6, 1886, in answer to the demands of the people of Cerro Alegre. The end result was perfect: an elegant and tasteful church, featuring two towers, three Roman-style naves with capitals full of Byzantine Renaissance carvings, simple altars and beautiful artwork

SOROMAYOR SQUARE

Located facing Muelle Prat (where you can observe the incessant activity of the port) and the Estacion Puerto (Port Station) of the railway. Its main attraction is the Monument to the Heroes of Iquique

VICTORIA SQUARE

This square is surrounded by the Cathedral, the Severin library, the Simon Bolivar square and the building of the Naval Club. For over 200 years this has been a public area, with beautiful boulevards and immense trees. It is located at the very heart of the city and is considered to be the social centre of Valparaiso
