Park
“Nowhere is Viña's nickname of the 'Garden City' better justified than at the magnificently landscaped Parque Quinta Vergara, which you enter from Errázuriz at the south end of Libertad (here called Eduardo Grove). It once belonged to one of the city's most illustrious families, the Alvares-Vergaras.”

Botanical Garden
“There are over 3000 plant species in the nearly 400 hectares of parkland that comprise Chile's Jardín Botánico Nacional. It's 8km southeast of the city center; take a taxi or catch bus 203 from Viña along Calle Alvarez to Puente El Olivar, then cross the bridge and walk about 500m north to the park's entrance signs.”

Pier
“Cuando el Muelle Vergara fue remodelado en 1983 se transformó en un hermoso atractivo turístico, paseo, mirador, zona de restaurantes, además de albergar actividades de pesca, y poseer un mirador desde donde se puede ver la amplia bahía de Valparaíso y los alrededores costeros de Viña del mar. Contaba también con un restaurante y un piano bar, una cafetería, venta de artesanías y heladería. Pronto se convertiría en un referente del turismo en Viña del Mar, rodeado de las playas Acapulco y El Sol, muy visitada no solo en los meses veraniegos, por su cercanía al centro de la ciudad y a diversos centros de comercio, gastronomía y diversión. Además, se encuentra rodeado de amplios jardines, y una variedad de edificios y hoteles para recibir a los visitantes que cada año concurren a este lugar. A un costado del muelle se establece una feria artesanal que ofrece variados objetos a los turistas y transeúntes. El borde costero, recientemente remodelado, ahora ofrece ciclovías, y circuitos deportivos. Por las noches, la zona del muelle se iluminaba con llamativas luces que atraían la atención de los turistas por las noches. Muchas de las postales más emblemáticas de nuestra ciudad mostraban con esplendor vistas panorámicas de este muelle y sus alrededores”

Castle
“Pretty Castillo Wulff, built by a prominent Valparaíso businessman in the early 20th century, hangs out over the sea: pass through the art exhibitions to the tower at the back, where you can peer through the thick glass floor at the rocks and waves below.”

Museum
“The original moai (an Easter Island statue) standing guard outside the Museo de Arqueología e Historia Francisco Fonck is just a teaser of the beautifully displayed archaeological finds from Easter Island within, along with Mapuche silverwork and anthropomorphic Moche ceramics. Upstairs are old-school insect cases and taxidermied Chilean fauna.”
