I love this elevator because it really has the best view of the Port of Valparaiso. Although is really pretty you have to make sure you go during daytime and you have to be really careful with your belongings. There's a really good crafts market...More

This is not a particularly nice square, the area not looking all that safe. The Artilleria Ascensor is nice, but only to get to the Maritime Museum
