Valparaiso , Chile






Valparaíso is a city and commune of Chile, center of its third largest conurbation (Greater Valparaíso), is located 69.5 miles northwest of Santiago and one of the country's most important seaports; it is an increasingly important cultural center in the Southwest Pacific hemisphere.
Valparaíso's bay was probably first populated by Picunches Indians, who were dedicated to agriculture. Other accounts say that it was the Changos who were nomads dedicated to fishing, and traveling between Caldera and Concepcion. Spanish explorers arrived in 1536, aboard the Santiaguillo, a supply ship sent by Diego de Almagro, who is considered the first European explorer, or discoverer, of Chile.
