Step into Chilean history and culture when you head to Plaza Sotomayor. Built to honor those who gave their lives during the War of the Pacific, fought between Chile and Peru, the square centers on a large memorial with explanatory placards. Many historical buildings surround the plaza, inspired by 17th-century French architecture. These include the old mayor's office, firefighters' headquarters, and port station. The city does a fireworks display some nights, of which you get a great view from the plaza.

Valparaiso is just a sad town, all in the past, with shabby remnants of one beautiful buildings. Here at least there is a beautiful monument and a lot of small shops round the corner more »
Nice to walk around. Flea market on Sunday, which you may find antique, old books.
A great place to visit with family, friends or just alone. A good opportunity to take nice photos. You can arrive by public transportation and even metro rail.
