  • The funicular ones are the easiest way to overcome without effort the climbings of the hills of Valparaíso. This, in particular, leads to the Paseo 21 de Mayo, where there is also the National Maritime Museum. It is worth the climb, because the view from there is exuberant: you can see from the port to Viña del Mar. There is a handicraft fair there, but there is nothing very different from what you see in the Santa Lucía Artisan Center in Santiago.

  • Yesterday 11/07/19 trip in the artillery elevator already q above that hill is the reason of my trip to valparaiso the restaurant-cafe house of the 4 winds. Beautiful celestial house located right on a tip like a vane!. rich food very good attention! Going back to our the elevator greatly unenhanced, literally 4 rusty sheets, the truth was not pleasant to travel in it and think that its value is one of the highest. The most beautiful elevator in my opinion is the Peral, it really is very nice and worthy to be visited! :)
