The city of Valparaiso in Chile is famous for it’s colourful, street art lined walls. It is often referred to as ‘Valpo’. The city is a port two hours north of Santiago and is brimming with life. I went to the wonderful city four times while living in Santiago, and I can’t wait to go again!
A while ago Camila of The Things I am Crazy For shared some of her street art photos from Valpo, and today I wanted to share some of my own with you. These were all taken during my first trip to Valparaiso; in May 2010. And, later this week I’ll be sharing some more photos from my other trips there too.
The lovely thing is that when you return to the city you are greeted with some of the same street art but of course new art too! And you are likely to see some street artists in action while you visit.
Where have you seen wonderful street art?
Happy Travel Tuesday!
