The steep roads and cobblestone alleyways of Valparaiso hide a secret underground culture. The Pacific breeze perpetually rolling through the city occasionally carries the scent of spray paint, as yet another masterpiece is made.
Valparaiso (“Valpo” for locals) is the cultural capital of Chile, and with that distinction comes an abundance of street art.
Tour the city with a member of this underground culture to see a side that eludes most travelers. Visit alleys adorned with murals, staircases flowing with visual manifestos, and an insight into why this art is here. Here is a very comprehensive inside look at Valpo street art.
