Valparaiso Fish Market
We just came back from a wonderful trip to Chile! Yes, that large (not wide) country in South America where they speak Spanish, suffer earthquakes and have the most beautiful landscapes ever!!! Well, I’m planning to write a few posts on Chile… but you know me… I plan and plan and afterwards I change my mind or I just don’t think it’s worth the effort… hahaha. However, and before I make up my mind, I want to show you a few things about this market in Chile. The Fish market in Valparaiso really stroke me!
If you want to visit it, take the train to Portales, a neighborhood in Valparaiso, right by the sea and you will find the most amazing Fish Market of Valparaíso. The images talk for themselves!!!
Everything is handy! The sea is right back, the fishing boats on the front, the lorry ready to transport the cut fish right there and the pelicans taking a good view of their lunch! A great deal of bones and fish guts goes to the floor… it lasts seconds!!!
Do we consider ourselves ecological? Check this! Nothing is wasted… everything has a purpose…
Sea lions also have their share! Fish bones and guts for everybody that knows where the fish market is!
Valparaiso Fish Market, one of the most awesome Chilean markets I have seen. Don’t miss the opportunity to visit it!
