Casa de Isla Negra, Isla Negra
(4.6/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • I remember having gone when nina when they still made the tours with a guide, the truth is that with the audio guide is much better one can tour the House at their own pace. It is always a pleasant walk to visit this House Museum which left us as the poet Pablo Neruda legacy is certainly a must-see for foreigners so that they can see part of our history.

  • Nice tour guided by the House of the poet. The best, the views from his house to the Pacific. To go once and know this well.

  • Because of our trip with my wife to Valparaiso, we take in the surroundings and opted to visit the Black island. Learn more than the literature of this great character, found us very interesting. Knowing that there is buried along with his wife and learn more about their stories, was worth the visit.
