Valparaiso is a city that just cant be described by words
Take a tour through a series of pictures
A city exploding with street art
Its literally everywhere !
And each Mural tells a different story
And to show respect for the artist and their work...
murals are left un-tagged
And only covered if the artist chooses to paint over it.
A city that thrived from gold in 19th centuary
Until the opening of the panama canal.
and all wealth abandoned Valparaiso.
This left local portanos in poverty
However 15 years later....
A city of depression
Became a city of colours
And art boasted through every nook and cranny!
In fact Valpo is such a unique city...
That in 2003
Valparaiso was declared a UNESCO world heritage site
And I can totally see why
Who wouldn't want to walk the history of this city?
