Quinta Vergara
At the beginning of XIX century it was property of Juan Antonio de la Carrera and his wife. He sold these lands to the Portuguese Merchant Francisco Salvador Alvarez in 1840, and he built here his house.

His wife Dolores Perez loved plants and vegetation and began cultivating them in her own garden. Their son, Salvador Alvarez, inherited the property. He was a sailor and travelled around the world to the East and Australia. He brought back plants and trees from his trips.

After he died, his granddaughter Mercedes Alvarez became the owner of this property. Later she married with Jose Francisco Vergara, founder of Viña del Mar in 1874.

After their daughter Blanca Vergara remained with the Quinta.The 1906 earthquake destroyed the house. Blanca built a Palace, that was finished in 1910 by the architect Hector Petri, with a Venetian style.

Nowadays, on the first floor of the Palace is the Bellas Artes Museum, with national and international pieces of art.
