We visited the coastal town of Valparaiso with our family friends last weekend. We took the bus from Santiago, caught a rickety funicular up Cerro Concepcion and enjoyed a lovely stroll through the winding streets lined by colourful tin houses.

Lunch was a spectacular feast of seafood dishes accompanied by delicious pisco sours. We walked off lunch in the harbour and Plaza Sotomayor, stopping at a craft market to pick up some souvenirs.

Valparaiso is famous for its vibrant culture, colour and ascensores
