Gap

Ascensor Concepcion takes you straight up a track into Cerro Alegre, high above the streets of lower Valparaiso. These ascensors were built in the 1880s and haven't been upgraded since - they are rickety and feel alarmingly old, yet are a daily part of life for Valpa's residents. Without them, getting around the cliffs and ridges would be next to impossible. This is looking through a gap in the wood as we rise up.
