The Beautiful Chaos of Valparaíso, Chile

Like the rest of Chile, Valparaíso is bursting with creative energy. But in many ways, this bohemian hillside port city feels extra special. The vibrant street art on the walls of its narrow, winding streets is mesmerizing; the colonial architecture and quirky cafes only add to its charm. It’s no wonder it’s where Pablo Neruda, a famous Chilean poet and diplomat, found his inspiration.

"Valparaíso,
how absurd
you are,
what a lunatic,
crazy port,
what a head - 
rolling hills,
disheveled,
you never
finished combing your hair..."
-Pablo Neruda
