Valparaíso: Valparaíso is a city, port, and commune of Chile, centre of its third largest conurbation (Greater Valparaíso). It is located 69.5 miles (111.8 km) northwest of Santiago and is one of the country's most important seaports. The city is the capital of the Valparaíso Province and the Valparaíso Region. Valparaíso played a very important geopolitical role in the second half of the 19th century, when the city served as a major stopover for ships traveling between the Atlantic and Pacific oceans by crossing the Straits of Magellan. Always a magnet for European immigrants, Valparaíso mushroomed during its golden age, when the city was known by international sailors as “Little San Francisco” and “The Jewel of the Pacific.”
A similar composition print in a steel engraving entitled Valparaiso, published in a volume of 'L'Univers. Histoire et description de tous les peuples' (Paris, 1840). The chapter on Chili is by M. César Famin.
