Viña del Mar is truly a city designed for aesthetic beauty as much as function. Castles, fountains, and fine gardens sit next to one another and modern high rise buildings overlook the nearby oceans and mountains that Chile has no shortage of. Viña del Mar has something to please the eye everywhere you look.
This resort town sits within easy reach of both Santiago and Valparaiso, making it a great day trip or week-long excursion. Wulff Castle is a beautiful historic castle that holds the Viña del Mar Heritage Center. Lovers of indigenous cultures should take time to visit the Folk Museum and explore Polynesian and Peruvian pre-Hispanic artifacts. Quinta Vergara is a local park that’s a must-see for tourists. There you’ll find the Vergara Palace, Quinta Vergara Amphitheater and a garden to relax in.
Given how lovely Viña del Mar is you’ll absolutely want to come away with photographs of your time here. In case you’re unfamiliar with the terrain your best bet is hiring a local photographer in Viña del Mar to help capture your best side!
