Vergara Pier

The Vergara Pier is an engineering work located between Acapulco and El Sol beaches, on Avenida San Martín, that connects with the beginnings of industrial activity north of the Estero Marga-Marga.



Work of the firm Lever and Murphy, the Vergara Pier began to be built in 1892 with the authorization of Salvador Vergara Álvarez, son of the city founder, José Francisco Vergara. In its early years it was used for freight services within a particular industrial complex. Here, coal from Lota was loaded and unloaded, until a severe winter storm in 1903 destroyed part of the structure, being repaired around 1919 and transferred to the Sugar Refinery Company of Viña del Mar (CRAV) until 1932 when it was expropriated by the treasury, after which it was again administered by individuals who provided services to various nearby companies.



With a design that respects its status as a historical heritage and a citizen's walk, the traditional Vergara Pier in Vina del Mar reopened its doors to the public at the end of November 2016 thanks to a recovery project executed by the Ministry of Public Works and its Directorate of Port Works with an investment that exceeded $ 7.3 billion.
