After landing in Santiago, we grabbed a rental car and drove straight to Valparaiso, a gritty city with a ton of personality. One thing it's famous for is the 15 rickety ascensors (funicular railways) that the locals use for getting up and down the enormous hills upon which the town is built. Using the ascensors was a big part of our Valparaiso experience. Pictured here is Ascensor Lecheros
