La Hija de la Fortuna / Daughter of Fortune by Isabel Allende (born in Chile) is set in Valparaiso… it’s a great story – one of my favorite books.
Also, during the dictatorship of Pinochet, the congress was moved to Valpo, I believe.
Pretty much the same town as Vina del Mar — Santiago’s beach playground & getaway.over 6 years ago
I’m chilean. Last year I signed to an exchange program in my school, and I had an Alabama girl in my home for two months. We went during winter vacations to Maitencillo, and for a day we did a trip to Valparaiso, cause is really close to Maitencillo. So my mom, Susan and I went to Valparaiso during this really warm day…We went to Cerro Alegre, bought some clothes, saw several art galleries, and the best thing, some people doing art theatre and a wandering spanish music band, and then we ate in this really hip cafe. I had been in the city a lot of times, but this time was really special and nice. I recommend it 200%, is just…incredible, beautiful, lots of cultural stuff to do and see, the bay is amazing. You can’t really recommend where to go, the best thing is to take some time and wander around the Cerros, talk to people, enter the art galleries, eat and relax.
