I’m finally getting around to posting my photos from my visit to Valparaíso, Chile a few weeks back. As I had mentioned in my post on Buenos Aires, I was in South America for a school trip and only spent about half a day exploring Valparaíso. Although my time in this part of Chile was limited, that did not stop me from falling in love with the city. I can only hope my photos do it justice.
My favorite part about visiting Valparaíso was getting to walk around the city’s gorgeous historic quarter. It’s such a treat having the opportunity to check out the colorful buildings, beautiful architecture and street art in this part of town. Furthermore, you get to experience amazing views of the city and port at every twist and turn.
Before heading back to Santiago, our group stopped at Plaza Sotomayor. The Plaza is directly in front of the plaza is the Chilean Navy headquarters, a beautiful baby blue building. Furthermore, the city’s port is also few blocks away. At the port, you can also find a cute little market with a nice array of kitschy souvenirs. I bought a few cute llama keychains to bring back to my siblings, which they absolutely loved.
Hopefully you enjoyed this photo travel diary of my short visit to Valparaíso! I would definitely recommend visiting if you find yourself in Chile and are looking for places to explore.
