Tour description:

Valparaíso has the form of a natural amphitheater facing the sea where most of the city hangs from the hills in a chaotic harmony and with tangible and intangible heritage embodied in customs and traditions of the particular lifestyle of the “porteño” (inhabitant of Valparaíso).
On this walking tour, we will be able to visit attractions of great architectural and historical interest, Alegre and Concepción hills with their strolls and viewpoints full of stories of foreign immigrants that arrived to Valparaíso when this important Port was considered “The Jewel of The Pacific Ocean” (before Panamá Canal). Sotomayor square and the history of its heroes besides Muelle Prat, to continue to the historic port town declared World Heritage by UNESCO where Plaza Echaurren and La Matriz church are located.
Additionally, on this tour we will use local public transport as Trolebús (trolley) a unique rolling heritage in the country being the second oldest in South America (in operation since 1952); and traditional ascensores (funiculars) that are a must panorama, a heritage with over a century of existence, necessary and used daily by the city inhabitants.
