Venue

Viña del Mar, Chile

  • WULFF CASTLE

    The Wulff Castle is a building located on the waterfront of the city of Viña del Mar on Avenida La Marina 37, between the Marga Marga estuary and the Caleta Abarca beach. Since 2005 it has housed the headquarters of the Heritage Unit of the Municipality of Viña del Mar. It was built between 1905 and 1906, being modified in 1920 and 1946. On September 20th, 1995 it was declared a “National Historic Monument” by the Ministry of Education.

  • QUINTA VERGARA

    The Quinta Vergara is a park where the Vergara Palace is located, with its gardens, and the amphitheater where the Viña del Mar International Song Festival is held annually. Admission is free and it is undoubtedly a tourist attraction worth visiting. The Vergara Palace was completed in 1910 and was the mansion of the Vergara Erråzuriz, an illustrious family of Viña del Mar, descendants of Francisco Vergara. Important political, musical and social gatherings of the time were held in this mansion.

  • RELOJ DE FLORES

    El Reloj de las Flores es una postal obligada de la ciudad. Cuenta la leyenda que aquellos que se fotografĂ­en con el reloj de flores volverĂĄn a la ciudad. Inaugurado el 15 de mayo de 1962, lo que motivĂł su construcciĂłn fue el mundial de fĂștbol que ese año se celebrĂł en nuestro paĂ­s. Su maquinaria ha sido sustituida de ser mecĂĄnica a actualmente ser manejada por computador, lo que permite que se adapte mejor a los tiempos.

  • VIEWPOINT OF CASTILLO HILL

    Just above the Flower Clock you will find the Castillo Hill, where you will find a viewpoint that will allow you to get a beautiful panoramic view of the coast. On this hill you will also find the beautiful presidential palace, used as a resting place for the presidents and of special importance as a center of operations, taking into consideration that the legislative power in Chile meets in the city of Valparaiso.
