We really enjoyed our time in Valparaiso. A one hour drive from Santiago. Spent the day walking in the old town where lots of buildings are covered in street art. On reflection i find it interesting that graffiti done as art rather than random tags...More

You don't have to walk far to feel the presence of Chile's maritime history - the buildings, the monuments, the sailors walking around and the smell of the sea.
