Cerro Polanco: home of the graffiti festival

StreetArt321-109We heard the ascensor up to this hill (cerro) was a cool one, so we were eager to check it out. Unfortunately, the “ascensor” was a simple elevator without any windows! They even charged us to ride it. So funny. The view from the top was stunning though and the hill had many extraordinary murals. Another massive photo collection, but well worth the time to peruse them.

StreetArt321-106This neighborhood saw the tourism dollars that street art has brought to other neighborhoods around Valparaiso, and they thought this was a good way to both spruce up the otherwise drab streets and grab some of those tourism pesos for themselves. They have invited artists from all over the world to participate. Four years later, this effort has brought dramatic changes to this previously depressed area of town. Enjoy the incredible colors and creativity!StreetArt321-97
