Valparaiso is a major port and second largest city of Chile. It was once the centre of 19th century British commercial and naval activity on the Pacific coast of South America. Its setting is dramatic beside a sweeping curve of a vast bay screened by a circle of hills, with modern lower city and winding upper section linked by ancient funiculars and zig-zag roads. Little of city's colonial past survived the storms, fires, earthquakes and pirates, but some remnants of the old colonial city are found in El Puerto area surrounding La Matriz church. Close by is impressive Vina del Mar, among the most popular and vibrant beach resorts of South America. Mainly Valparaiso is currently the gateway to Santiago situated on a 1,706-foot plateau, featuring the Andes as a backdrop.
Established in 1542, Valparaiso was a tiny port trading with Peru until Chilean independence - then it became a Pacific banking and commercial base for European and US ships rounding the Horn. The port of Valparaiso started to decline with the advent of the Panama Canal and steamships, and later the shift of banking to Santiago and the new San Antonio container port.
