Valparaíso has already made a name for itself – it is officially a part of the “World’s Most Beautiful Cities” list, compiled by… who knows, but definitely for a very good reason!  It has also been added to the UNESCO World Heritage Sites, and was actually founded in… 1543, whoa!  So what is Valparaíso?

Valparaíso is a beautiful seaport town that has a bit of everything – sea, mountains, nature, gorgeous architecture, great food, nice graffiti, interesting cafes and bars, elegant boutique hotels, and the list goes on.  Majority of the residential homes are spread across the steep hills and have the best views in towns.

So if you find yourself one day in Santiago, Chile do not miss visiting this fun, little town – see the pictures below, as they will give you a good reason or two.  Valparaíso is located on only a 1,3 hours drive away from Santiago, and for more information, see this article: Top 10 Reasons To Visit Santiago de Chile.

Local tip: do watch out for pickpockets, and always keep an eye on your belongings, as you normally would in any South American city.
