Valparaíso Off The Beaten Path: 34 reviews and 91 photos

There is a small monument for Cristobal Colon / Christoph Columbus in the port of Valparaiso, not far from Plaza Sotomayor. Columbus is quite popular in this part of the world and everybody is aware of the fact that their own history would have been completely different without Columbus and his search for an easy way to India. There is another monument for Columbus in Av. Brasil.
