Despite its size, it is the most characteristic city of the country and the most enigmatic of South America. It occupies a narrow strip of land between the coast and the surrounding hills. It consists of a center with winding cobbled streets, dominated by cliffs and slums perched on the hill that can be accessed by a funicular railway and through the stairs.
