Reviewed 13 March 2012

Visiting Valparaiso without knowing the history, the stories, the anecdotes, is missing the most interesting part of your visit. This is particularly true with this monument. It is big, beautiful, in a scenic place. True. But getting to learn the story behind it makes it much more interesting and beautiful.
