People obviously go up with the little old ascensor, and that could be already part of the pleasure, but unfortunately not. You cannot have a view from it, because of the doors. Then the viewpoint comes, which doesn't offer a voww panorama. In fact, it is more exciting down there, watching local people, ships, and boats. The only thing you can not see in the port is a battleship. The paseo does not offer more than the view point. Also, it is full of cheap souvenir stuff. It is only a view from above but does not offer hidden beauties what you normally discover when going up higher.

This is not a particularly nice square, the area not looking all that safe. The Artilleria Ascensor is nice, but only to get to the Maritime Museum

Couple of stores on the street, and a bunch of restaurants. The view is supposed to be The. Best. View. in Valpa. It isn't, though if you are around I suppose is worth it. Elevator is 0.5 usd round trip (Ascensor Artilleria is the official name).

Specially recommend Los 4 Vientos Restaurant ( the 4 winds), if you are into fish and seafood but do not want to pay a fortune. Amazing view. Reasonable prices.

Warning: this place is inside the Port Area, which basically means that if you are a tourist (and if you are reading this you almost certainly are one), you should by all means necessary avoid this neighbourhood after 5-6 pm. You'll get robbed.

Nice little walking stroll to visit history and the port of Valparaiso from top. Lots of folks selling local arts and murals at descent price. Parking is a headache even for the tour guide.

this location grants you a view over the port that is unparalleled. The paseo has this cute outdoor craft market [I always get stuff here]. And there are great coffee shops and restaurants nearby.
