Valparaiso Funiculars Nov 11, 2013
Once upon a time, Valparaiso was the center of transportation for all boats that were circling around the South America. This city was the place where boats were filled with coal and fresh provisions, provided good port and needed rest. There used to be almost 30 funiculars that connected the port area with the cliff side of the town. Now days no more than ten of them are still working. This lifts were needed because cliff surrounding the port did not allow for many easy roads and space of the port area was not big enough to house people from the city. Funiculars go up on very steep angle and they are all made differently.
