These funiculars are over a hundred years old and still running, even if somewhat shakily. It’s around 100 CLP single-trip. Cheaper than the actual elevator of Cerro Cordillera.

I photographed these three funiculars on the same day, when I returned to Cerro Concepcion and Alegre for a third time to join a walking tour. I rode Reina Victoria and El Peral, and just dashed in to photograph Ascensor Concepcion.

Ascensor Reina Victoria (constructed 1902) – you’ll land on Paseo Dimalow, Cerro Concepcion

Ascensor El Peral- you’ll land on Paseo Yugoslavo, Cerro Alegre

Ascensor Concepcion (constructed 1883)- Cerro Concepcion
(oldest and fastest funicular in Valparaiso)
