Bismark Square

Av. Alemania 5255, Valparaíso

Description

This beautiful square is located on Alemania Avenue (5255 m.a.s.l.) in the heart of the Cerro Cárcel de Valparaíso, right between Cummings and Atahualpa streets, and is one more of the beautiful seafront amphitheatres of this wonderful port.

This square is in a quite important cultural point of Valparaíso, because at its feet is the Puppet and Clown Theatre-Museum and one block down is the imposing Valparaíso Cultural Park (PCdV or ex-prison, as you prefer to call it), the most important center of culture in Valparaíso.

In 2012, it was restored thanks to an initiative that arose from a partnership between the organization Valpo Intervenviene, students from the Pedro Montt High School and the work of volunteers who, with the financing of materials by a businessman from Cerro Cárcel, managed to produce the 21 lines of happy designs that covered the seven pillars of Plaza Bismarck, the main promenade of Cerro Cárcel that was covered in stripes.
