Valparaiso, Chile.  An amazing city full of art, culture and COLOR!  Imagine a small magical San Fransisco built with a gypsy sensibility and you have Valparaiso!

Valparaiso is considered the art and culture center of Chile and this cannot be more evident than in its street art.

Walking around the city is like going for a gallery walk in a huge outdoor museum.
