The monument is said to have been created by the British immigrants living here to noted the anniversary of Chile. What I found so impressive was the style and structure, for me, seemed more European, e.g. Arc de Triomphe de l'Étoile in Paris or similar...More

If you walk from the bus station towards the main part of town, you could come past this arch celebrating the British colony. The arch and the park and the street are not maintained well.

Well worth a visit if you are interested in the history of immigrants in Valparaiso. You can look at the bronze reliefs and take a stroll in the rose garden.

It's a pretty nice arch, but I really wouldn't go out of my way to see it, unless you've never seen an arch like it before. After having seen numerous arches in Europe, you kind of start to lose interest in them...

El Arco Britanico is definitely one of the more impressive monuments in Valparaiso. It is well kept and the little park around it is also clean. Worth visiting if in the area
