Art, Art and more Valpariaiso Art
I've shared some of the terrific murals you can find in Valpo, but not enough. This is one of the things that makes the city so interesting: You never know what is around the corner! So here are some more, from Cerro Alegre (Happy Hill).
This mural was down a tiny little passage way, and was HUGE!
Perhaps an artist in training did this?
I went around a corner, and saw the little floating person tucked into a corner. Later, when going down the hill via a set of loooong steps, I found what else? An ascensor:
Notice the metal siding- many of the older buildings in Valparaíso have this type of corrugated siding. Some, like this one, have been kept in really good shape. There was a little store on the first floor, and apartments above.
