Valparaiso, Chile’s cultural capital, has been an important part of this country’s history and was declared World Heritage site in 2003. It’s a large bay with 45 hills surrounding it, naturally creating a spectacular amphitheater. The sea is the stage and each house, a seat with a panoramic view of the harbor. It’s a special place of Chile where its pure essence, people, hidden spots, streets, viewpoints and alleys can be enjoyed. The city always surprises every visitor in an unforgettable way.
