It is appropriately coloured- as blue. It is a side of a great square, which I am sure you will visit in Valparaiso.
In a crowded square of Valparaíso near to the Aduana and the boat trips (totally recomended for just 5 dollars), you can find this amazing building that remembers all the fallen in "Combate naval de Iquique" and "Punta Gruesa". All the surrondings are beautiful architectural (various styles) and colorful grafittis. Is a really nice place to visit.
That was pretty much the only building that we liked in that part of town. It is located in a beautiful little square with tons of traffic on each side. Well worth the photo stop.
We went there on the day when buildings are made open to the public. Very opulent, similar in style to Club Naval. The tour was very interesting, but I couldn´t help feeling that we, the taxpayers, pay for all this!
I know everyone says it looks French but to me (I am French) it looks like a delightful powder blue Victorian building! We were there at the end of the day, the light was beautiful. It was such a great experience, sitting outside Starbucks, drinking our lattes, admiring the Plaza Sotomayor, go and enjoy!
This very impressive building over looking the area were we waited for our walking tour in the port area.This is very French in style worth a look.
WE only visited the outside of this building on a recent visit to Valparaiso. WE were able to get right up to the front of the building which had some unique art (shipping containers on angles). You can see this and the entire port area in 15 minutes.
