Trip Planner: South America / Chile / Valparaiso Region / Valparaiso / Cerro Concepcion
Meander around the lovely hilltop neighborhood of Cerro Concepcion and enjoy sweeping views over Valparaiso's shorefront. Springing forth from the ruins of the city's old walls, the neighborhood quickly found its own bohemian, quirky character, which persists to this day. Colorful houses line the narrow streets, occasionally interrupted by equally vibrant street art. Hang out with Valparaiso's coolest crowd at one of the area's trendy coffee shops, or hunt for the perfect souvenir among the quaint handicraft shops. Put Cerro Concepcion into our Valparaiso road trip planner to see other points of interest to visit during your vacation in Valparaiso.

Absolutely fantastic neighborhood where every single twist and turn leads to absolutely amazing scenery. From the beautiful and meticulously painted start art to the painted fronts of residential buildings and the lovely shops scattered throughout the area. This place is a must see in the port city. All located within the historic quarter and designated as a UNESCO world heritage site which ensures this place remains beautiful for many years to come.
One of the most beautiful places in Chile! I found this place on a Google search as I was looking for a day trip from Santiago. It's about 2 hrs away but a pretty drive in the fall. The town is built on a hill and is a major port of the country. The old buildings are so colorful and pretty! There are lots of good seafood restaurants in the area. Very nice area to walk around. The roads are narrow and tough for cars. Some good viewpoints of the ocean and city as well. Need to come back to explore more!!
This hill is one of the most touristy parts of Valpo so you definitely should check it out, but you can skip the restaurants up there because you're paying for prime real estate instead of the food. It's certainly very colorful and you have to walk through it if you are on a walking tour.
They have all different cartoons on the wall and nice look out Ocean Pacific.
Walk this Neighbourhood. Valparaíso is not a beautiful city, but a rather badly maintained mix of architecture, while having the typical chaos and rowdiness of a traditional port city. Nevertheless the Cerro Concepción thrives in this, allowing the liberty of art and alternative lifestyles to express themselves here. Most houses are covered in graffiti art (or not so art), making for a pleasant walk along its narrow streets and many photo opportunities.
