About This Project

The chilean city of Valparaíso has a population of close to 300,000 people, and if we include its Metropolitan Area it reaches 935,602 inhabitants, being the most populated in the region and the third city after Greater Santiago and Greater Concepción.

Geographically, Valparaíso is presented in the form of a large natural amphitheater, located in the homonymous bay and surrounded by hills, in which most of the population lives. Between the foot of the hills and the sea, the Plan is formed, the center administrative, commercial and financial of the city; while the edge of the sea is occupied by the port.

Due to its architectural wealth developed mainly at the end of the 19th century, in 2003 its historic center was declared a World Heritage Site by UNESCO, becoming the third Chilean site protected by the international organization, after the Rapa Nui National Park and 16 churches of Chiloé.

This photographic work is a sample of several places in Valparaiso from which you can see the city and which can be reached on foot or by bus, following a tourist route.
