We didn't feel like there was enough to do to justify seeking this out, but it's a nice view. We had to wait for the ascensor, which was more expensive than others around town, and only stayed above for a short while.

The promenade overlooks Valparaiso Harbor. It is not the best of views as most of the port is covered with containers. The hills of Valparaiso are in the distance. Along the promenade there are a number of vendors selling souvenirs and jewelry. The promenade is...More

You go up the tram, take a look around on the promenade, admire the view, and come back down. No reason to hang around.

Our tour bus stopped some 300 metres from this lookout and we walked downhill along a narrow street, past a funicular, National Maritime Museum, houses with the usual graffiti, dog poop on the sidewalk and roadway and then we arrived. Great views of the port...More

One of the city's most charming features is a series of 15 funiculars built between 1883 and 1916 to transport citizens up the steep hills surrounding the waterfront. It's about 25 cents to take one up to this promenade for very good views of the...More

Not really sure why people recommend this town for visit as it is rather dull. The sea side is just a port and I can't say seeing cargo being loaded onto ships is that exciting to me.

Luckily our Hostel was just around the corner from here so we didn't have to walk much to reach it but the views are stunning! Highly recommended
