Owner description: This hillside tram is over 100 years old and is now a national monument. Tourists can still ride the lift today and take in breathtaking panoramic views of downtown and the ocean.

On our tour through the Paseo 21 De Mayo neighbourhood and halted briefly to view this funicular from the base. It is one of the 16 funicular railways located in Valparaíso. and is privately owned. This was the third funicular railway built in the city. It was commissioned on the 29th of December 1892 but did not commence operation until 22nd of January 1893. Interesting piece of history.
Now this would have been more interesting than the bus ride to the lookout.

This is a cheap ride up the hill to an area with a bunch of tourist stalls and great views of the port and Valparaiso. It cost 600 pesos roundtrip (300 each way) and you pay at the top when you arrive and then again before going down. Acouple of the other funiculars were under serious repair so this was the only one I rode here.

Riding an ascensor (and there are many) is a must when you visit Valparaiso, and they are s cheap ($0.20 - $075) and great fun.
