The Colors of Valparaíso, Chile

Like a big bowl of colorful Jelly Bellies – Valparaíso offers the same eye candy.

Old homes, wrapped in corrugated zinc siding covered in wall art/graffiti, cling to the 17 hills (cerros) towering over the port area.  The best way to access this wonderland is to take a nail biting ride up one of many funiculars (acensores) – operating since 1833.

The town is most known for its historic center of town – named a World Heritage site in 2003. The best part is the artist vibe oozing out of the cerros.  A close second has to be the array of artisanal restaurants – from the architecture to the decor to the cutting edge menus.

Have a look…
