El Arco Britanico is definitely one of the more impressive monuments in Valparaiso. It is well kept and the little park around it is also clean. Worth visiting if in the area

We went by the Arc a few times last week and were not that impressed with it. First, it should be called El Arco Francia since it look more like a cheaper Arc de Tiomphe. The design is still very nice, just doesn't fit in...More
