The different and huge international immigration transformed the local culture from Spanish origins and Amerindian origins into its unique architecture and design. Their buildings reflected a variety of European styles, making Valparaíso more varied than some other Chilean cities. In August 18, 1906, Valparaiso was hit by a major earthquake. There was extensive property damage and thousands of deaths. After visiting the port, you will enjoy the beauty of Viña del Mar. It’s often referred as “La Ciudad Jardín” (“The Garden City”).

It is a historic wine-producing region and the birthplace of the Chilean wine industry. It started over more than 150 years ago. The Maipo Valley can be divided in three sub-regions: Alto Maipo, Central Maipo, and Pacific Maipo. You will be stopping in Santa Rita Vineyard. It was founded in 1880 by Domingo Fernández Concha, who introduced fine French wine stocks which originated his wine making.
