Things To Do

Attractions

Reñaca

No more than 10 minutes outside downtown Viña, lies Reñaca, an upscale, long beach that is the epicenter of summer activity in Chile’s Region of Valparaíso.

Nearby, you can enjoy shopping centers, nightlife, extensive dining offerings to satisfy all tastes, hotels and places to look out over the imposing Pacific Ocean.

Floral Clock

History and beauty combined, the floral clock lies in downtown Viña del Mar at the foot of the emblematic Cerro Castillo and across from Caleta Abarca Beach.

The clock is part of the history of the city and the country. Acquired when Chile hosted the Soccer World Cup in 1962, it still attracts tourists from all over the world today.

Valparaíso

Just 20 minutes from downtown Viña del Mar, Valparaíso is Chile’s most important port, and the surrounding city is a World Heritage Site.

On its streets, you can enjoy views surrounded by colorful houses, viewpoints, cafes, restaurants, Pablo Neruda’s house, and the entire history of one of Chile’s most important cities.

You can take a boat ride along the coast to watch the port activity.

Cerro Castillo

Just above the Flower Clock you will find Cerro Castillo, where you will find a viewpoint that will allow you to get a beautiful panoramic view of the coast.

On this hill is also the beautiful presidential palace, used as a rest house for presidents and of special importance as a center of operations, taking into consideration that the legislative power in Chile meets in the city of Valparaíso.

Casino of Viña del Mar

Located in the heart of Viña del Mar, this casino was the first gaming center in the country. In addition to its beautiful architecture, the fact that it has several other services besides games stands out. For example, restaurant, show rooms, conference rooms and a five-star hotel.

Muelle Vergara

Built in 1892, it was important in the industrial era of the city, when coal was received from the Lota deposits. Later and after repairs due to damage from a winter storm, it passed into the hands of the Viña del Mar Sugar Refinery in 1919, until it was expropriated, passing into private hands in 1932. In 1983 it was remodeled and became a tourist promenade and a well-known Viña del Mar postcard.
