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.
