Quinta Vergara is a park located in Viña del Mar, Chile. The park features three major landmarks: the Palacio Vergara, the Quinta Vergara Amphitheater and a garden. Every year the park is home to the Viña del Mar International Song Festival.
The Palace Vergara is the former home of Jose Francisco Vergara, the founder of Viña del Mar. The home was built by the Vegara family in 1910 in a Venetian Gothic style. The home serves as a replacement to the family's former home, which was destroyed in the 1906 Valparaíso earthquake. In 1941 the city bought the building and it was converted into a museum of fine art, which features over 60 works of art. The park around the home features sculptures and statues, including a bust of writer Gabriela Mistral.
