Chile Valparaiso

Valparaíso is on the coast 116km west of Santiago and much colder than we expected.

Although Valparaiso is the birthplace of both Salvador Allende and Augusto Pinochet, our focus was on the home of Pablo Neruda, Nobel Prize winner for Literature.

After the museum, Nicola led us past colorful houses and murals. We also travelled up on several funiculars.
