This is another area of the city which would benefit from some TLC - or just some tidying up? Tourism is clearly important to Valparaíso these days, so they need to focus more effort on making it a great experience.

Nice stop-over point on the way to Pablo Neruda's house. Shake hands with a statue. Put your arm around another. The park is a little dirty, but not out of the ordinary for Valpo standards.

You get there by walking downhill from la Sebastiana (Neruda's house and museum). There are nice souvenir stalls on the way as well. Try the different flavours of alfajores.

If you visit La Sebastiana and walk downhill you will pass by Plaza Las Poetas. The plaza has some nice mature trees and a playground for children at the eastern end. There are some benches but they don't have a back. I found it more...More

We stumble upon this very particular statue and very much were intrigued by it. We then learn that this was a fairly big part of the Valparaiso culture and decided to stay a few more minutes. Great place just to reset and enjoy the moment!
