Valparaiso is one of the best places to visit on a tour of Chile. Before the construction of the Panama Canal, Valparaiso was the “Jewel of the Pacific”. This charming port town, considered once to be the most important port in western South America, is now the perfect escape from the busyness of Santiago. Visit this UNESCO World Heritage Site, and admire its beautifully persevered 19th-century urban infrastructures. The hillside funicular (Funicular Concepcion) leads visitors to the best view of the city, full of church spires, colonial mansions, and colorful buildings. While on a tour here, you’ll soon realize why poets, painters, and philosophers were drawn to this vibrant port town. Today, Valparaiso attracts international visitors with its unique history and bohemian flair. Head to Paseo Gervasoni and gaze at the impressive wall murals and local art galleries. Then, explore Pablo Neruda’s house, and don’t leave without sampling the local seafood, sopa marina.
