Valparaiso and Viña del Mar image

On the coast, Valparaiso is a colourful and charming port town originally built on seven hills linked by sixteen funicular railways - the historic inner city was declared a World Heritage site in 2003. The city is widely known for its bohemian culture, brightly coloured houses, and beautiful seaside views.

Viña del Mar is a few kilometres to the north-east of Valparaiso (Valpo) and is one of South America’s leading coastal resorts. There’s not a great deal of historical interest at Viña but it’s certainly very pleasant for morning coffee or afternoon tea and a stroll along the seafront and leafy boulevards.
