Time-Lapse – Cerro Barón Funicular Railway (Valparaíso, Chile)

This time-lapse video clip shows the recently restored Cerro Barón Funicular Railway in Valparaíso. It was  built back in 1906 when it was the city’s first ever electrically engineered funicular railway.

The video was produced by Architect and Photographer Álvaro Barrios. His aim is to highlight, through photography, the touristy and urban benefits that these Ascensores or funicular railways bring to the city of Valparaíso, Chile’s cultural capital.
