Muelle Prat or Prat Jetty is just west of Sotomayor Square and you cannot miss it as you drive through Valparaiso.You get good views form the jetty of the workings of the port and the real largte port in the background. Not a bgreat area but interesting.
Valparaiso has a lot of port history and the person behind it all, Prat. Do get a chance to take the free history tour which gives you a nice insight of Valparaiso. Definitely worth the sight to see the port.
I've visited this place since I was a child. However, there's always something new: new ships, new people, new handcrafts. If you wish you can take one of the little boats and see some of our Navy ships from the distance.
Very cheap and wonderful experiences enjoy the views from the boat and the culture within the port with local merchants and a big plaza to add to your experience of Valparaiso
If you are standing in Plaza Sotomayor and walk away from the Navy building, you will end up here. The port has some small touristy shops, people trying to get tourists to eat at their restaurants and the boat tours. I arrived perhaps a bit early as crowds hadn't really formed…
