Valparaiso was definitely my favorite while in Chile. Big seaport city, a declared UNESCO World Heritage Site, colorful and fun to explore. Did you hear: Colorful?!
An amazing amount of street art and painted houses along the winded streets of the hills.
The cables are kind of as crazy as in the U.S. lol – – but I was smitten by the colorful stairs.
There was just so much to see and take in
Valparaiso was once called “Little San Francisco” and streets like these made me understand why :) As you stop every 2 seconds too look at something colorful and amazing you make your way way up there – good workout to walk off some of the delicious empanadas we had for lunch.
How fun is this lady?
and I so so so loved the colors and imagery and patterns here
And some fun mark making patterns
More beautiful flowers set next to a beautiful blue house – BAM like color explosion
I loved that the hydrants were yellow and not red.
Look at this row of houses all in different colors
and a door bell plate
and the mixture of corrogated metal, wooden door and graphity – I love the texture, the colors and the feel
Some interesting houses – loads of balconies
and it was so green too
but I did feel for the gas cartridge delivery guy – ouch!
And so slowly we made our way down – had some seafood close to the harbor and went back to Santiago.
This day in Valparaiso made me super happy – I am smiling writing the post and looking at those photos again. Hope you enjoyed the photos as much :)
