CACERES, Gonzalo  and  SABATINI, Francisco. Para entender la urbanización del litoral:: el balneario en la conformación del Gran Valparaíso (siglos XIX y XX). ARQ (Santiago) [online]. 2003, n.55, pp.50-52. ISSN 0717-6996.

Incorporating water naturally into areas of daily life is a relatively new phenomenon. The bathroom and today’s ideas of hygiene are modern inventions; a happy-go-lucky relationship with the sea gave birth to the modern beach resort, which is scarcely 100 years old. This essay looks at the way Viña del Mar, first an industrial extension to Valparaíso and then its upper class neighborhood, re-positioned itself towards the Pacific with the first beaches at Miramar.

Keywords : Urbanism; town planning - Chile; history of town planning; beach resorts; Valparaíso; Viña del Mar; garden city.
