It's a treat to ride one if the many ascensores in Valparaiso including this one. You can reach el 21 de mayo and get a great view of the pier and watch the cranes loading the sea containers onto the tractor trailers.

Part of a day trip while the cruise ship was in port. Visited on the advice of the port Tourist Information girl. Got the local trolley bus along through town into the Concepcion area on the headland. Great view of the cruise ship from the top. Lots of small cafes and restaurants at the top. Well worth a visit.

Another of the nice Ascensors, on the Northern edge of town. Not much at the top apart from nice views of the port, the Maritime Museum and a few nice local restaurants and cafes

Ascensor Artillery takes you to a great view of the city and harbor. Beautiful Victorian homes up top.

Great old ascensor to take you to the top of the hill. Slow, rickety ride but worth it since it costs almost nothing to ride. Once at the top, the views are amazing and there are a few tourist shops and a little market shop where you can buy snacks and drinks. If you'd rather not ride the ascensor, you can walk up a path.
