Historic Quarter of the Seaport City of Valparaíso Chile, 2005

A charming town on large hills surrounding a harbor, much like San Francisco or Sydney.

Though it has seen better times, and there's an air of faded glory (it was the main port in South America until the Panama canal made it obsolete), it is definitely worth a visit for the rough and grubby lived in atmosphere mixed with an sense of the past.

Also see Chile.
