  Plaza Sotomayor

This square is probably Valparaiso's main square. There are older ones, new ones and renovated ones, but this is one of the most visited. Probably because is next to the port. Probably because it has some amazing buildings surrounding it, or probably because that's where Arturo Prat (one of our Navy heroes) is resting.
Anyhow, it's one of Valparaiso's must see, and starting point for the rest of the city.

Address: Next to the port
Directions: Take any bus that goes to Valparaiso. Just ask the driver if he passes through Plaza Sotomayor (80% of them will say yes). It's impossible to miss it.
