Parque Quinta Vergara
This grandiose park is Viña’s premier green space, lusciously green and immaculately manicured. A wealthy Portuguese businessman first developed the estate, which rests on a hill between Valparaiso and Viña, as his private residence in the 1840s. Over time, his gardening-enthusiast wife transformed the lot into the most beautiful park in the city, aided by her sailor son who brought exotic plant species in from faraway lands. These days, it’s home to a grand palace which houses the Museum of Fine Arts as well as an outdoor amphitheater where the famous Viña del Mar International Song Festival takes place.
