Valparaiso – Chile

harbour at Valparaiso

Valparaiso is a harbour town about 10km from Vina del Mar. 

Barry and Reinhardt

We met Reinhardt on the ship to Antarctica and when we discovered that he grew up in Vina and that he offered to take us on a sight-seeing tour of Valparaiso we were really grateful.  He was a fabulous host and tour guide and intrigued us with history and stories concerning Valparaiso.

funiculars are quick modes of transport up and down the hills

buildings with character

romantic walks

we made it back to Vina del Mar in time for sunset and coffee and cake on the beach
