If you like to run amid the hustle and bustle of city life, the long linear park down the median of Valparaíso’s Brasil Road is the spot for you. This green strip cuts right through the heart of the city, running for 1.7 km from Plaza Cívica in the west to Pontificia Universidad Catolica De Valparaíso in the east. Along the way, the concrete, stone, and dirt walkway is lined with palm trees, gardens, and monuments like Arco Británico and the Monumento al Bombero. There are also some stunning buildings along the way, including the Biblioteca Pública Santiago Severín and the Palacio Polanco. Runners can use Brasil as a starting place for other nearby points of interest in the city, like Plaza Victoria, Palacio Lyon, the Catedral de Valparaíso, and the Museo a Cielo Abierto. The Brasil walkway itself is 3.3 km out and back.
Add-Ons: The Valparaíso waterfront route begins near the eastern end of the Brasil route. Our Cerro Concepción route is located just east of the eastern end of the Brasil park.
