  • English and Spanish
  • 2.5 hours

Discover why Viña del Mar is known as the Garden City of Chile: explore beautiful mansions, majestic castles and spectacular coastal views on this free walking tour.

Viña del Mar Free Walking Tour

Meet your guide in front of the famous Flower Clock, one of Viña del Mar's most iconic sights. You'll begin your free walking tour of this beautiful coastal city learning about the significance of the unusual clock, installed in 1962 for the occasion of the Football World Cup, which was held in Chile.

Wandering through Viña del Mar, you'll reach Cerro Castillo, or Castle Hill. This is one of the city's most important sites, but it remains one of the least explored. Mansions, castles and viewpoints make it one of the most breathtaking places from which to admire Viña del Mar. You'll discover Brunet Castle, also known as Yarur Palace, where your guide will reveal the surprising history of this fairytale building, every single brick of which was brought to Chile from France! 

Immerse yourself in the daily life of Viña del Mar's locals next as you hop on board the metro at Miramar, the most important transport hub in the city, which takes tourists and residents alike from the coast to the countryside. You'll travel to the heart of the city centre, where you'll delve into its fascinating history, visiting the monuments where key events have taken place.

Embrace nature in the Garden City next as you visit Parque Quinta Vergara, a beautiful green space full of local flora. Your free walking tour will come to an end here, after hearing about Latin America's most important music festival and what happened in 1974 that led to the city's locals earning the nickname "The Monster"...!
