Valparaiso, Chile, is a port city north of Santiago. It is colorful and has embraced street art to add character and interest to what would otherwise be buildings that lack intricate architectural details.
Walking around Valparaiso yields surprises around every corner.
I assume that the people who own these buildings have allowed their buildings to be the canvas for the creativity of the street artists who have transformed the city into what they call an "Open Air Museum."
Some of the street art paintings are grand in scale.
