The visit continues towards the city of Viña del Mar, passing through the traditional "flower clock," recently fully restored after being destroyed by the fall of a tree. Viña del Mar is the "Garden City", due to its beautiful parks, original suburban architectural style, beautiful beaches and coastal avenues dotted with modern buildings, hotels, the Casino, restaurants and outdoor cafes. Half-hidden among the hills and with its splendid gardens is the "Quinta Vergara", one of the main attractions of Viña del Mar.
