Casa de Isla Negra, Isla Negra

4.7
#2 of 16 in Museums in Valparaiso Region
Built on a rocky headland overlooking the ocean, Casa de Isla Negra commemorates the life and work of this world-famous poet. The residence features a ship-like interior and a number of eccentric collections, including a huge number of shells in the "Under the Sea" room. Watch the short video about Neruda's life in the lobby. Walk under the low ceilings, through narrow passageways, and across the creaking wooden floors of the rooms decorated with ship figureheads, maps, ships in bottles, masks, and wooden carvings from all over the world. See the huge tusk of a narwhal, which Neruda brought from Norway. Enter the master bedroom, and notice how the bed faces windows with a clear view of the ocean. Neruda lived in the house with his third wife, and the claim that this was his favorite residence is supported by the fact that both spouses were buried here.

  • Great attraction, being in the area never had made me the time to visit this House. Point against: medium-high season it is saturated, we had to wait 45 min after box, in a row, in full sun (Luckily that wasn't so hot), once in one given account that is worth waiting for that time. Another point to improve, is that remote controls that pass at the entrance could come with headphones to avoid having to bring them stuck to the ear all the time, because that same tired. Apart from that, the place is very well preserved, all very explanatory and gives a bit of nostalgia tour the place and know that it was home to the great poet, throughout the tour lasts approximately 40 min app, then one can take photographs in the area of the Tomb , where there is also a lookout, very nice all.

  • We definitely recommend a visit to this unique House up in the Valpareisos heights. The House is beautifully situated with a view of the sea. Neruda was a special man and it makes one really the impression in the House while one moves up in the six floors.

  • Off the beaten path but appears to be a big destination for Chileans. The scenery from the house is incredible and the home is basically a collection of randomness built into a fun quirky design. The audio guides offered in multiple languages are awesome
  • Absolutely amazing! A must see if you're anywhere near Isla Negra. The tour of Pablo Neruda's house and audio guide is well worth the price.
  • Audioguides in spanish and english. Lot of objects from Pablo Neruda's collection. The view is astonishing.
  • One of the three Pablo Neruda houses, definitely worth the effort of visiting despite slightly more remote yet stunning location on the shore of the Pacific.
  • Truly beautiful place with such history of the poet in a stunning ocean side home.
