36 City Surrounding Seaport in Valparaíso, Chile

Valparaíso was a quiet fishing village until Chile became independent from Spanish rule. Then, the Chilean Navy established its headquarters, academy and port here in the early 19th century. Within decades it grew into a major commercial seaport. Although nearby San Antonio is now Chile’s largest port, the Greater Valparaíso metropolitan area has become the country’s second largest city with a population of over 900,000 people.
