About the Tour

We'll discover the oldest quarter of Valparaíso and point of historical origin of the port city. We begin in Plaza Sotomayor recognizing its architecture and other stories that shaped this plaza built on the sea during the 19th century. Then we enter the Barrio Puerto, part of the Unesco site and origin of Valparaíso that maintains until today the traditional porteña life with its local shops, bars and popular "picás" including the renovated Mercado Puerto, and of course, you will see colorful and artistical, graffiti of Valparaiso's street art.

We will take a funicular (the famous ascensores) to go up the Cordillera hill or Santo Domingo hill and see viewpoints with unique and gorgeous views of the hills of Valparaíso. On the route, we will learn to recognize our native flora and fauna of Valparaiso's nature.

We return and end in Plaza Sotomayor.

Welcome to live the Ecomapu Experience!
