According to the story, Viña del Mar began as a dream. It was founded in 1874 when Jose Francisco Vergara decided to create a town near Valparaiso, but with its own style and identity. If Vergara were to see Viña del Mar today, he would be proud: In little more than a century, Viña has become the Chile's tourism industry’s main city.
