The city is characterized by his curious geography formed by 44 hills that create a natural amphitheater towards the pacific ocean.

Valparaiso is recognized by his infinite stairs, narrow passages, numerous viewing-points and his former elevators.

    I'd really like to visit this city, and Chile in general.... A few years ago, I stopped my "America Latina" trip in the south of Bolivia, just before the chilian border, and I promised myself that I'd come back one day to see Chile from north to south!! :))
