Create an itinerary including Casa de Isla Negra
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Casa de Isla Negra and other Isla Negra attractions using our handy Isla Negra day trip planning website.

  • Museum of Pablo Neruda's house (and supposedly the best!). 7,000 pesos each, well worth it. Opens at 10am I think, so get there in the morning (the buses were arriving as we left around midday...

  • Beautiful place, the house is very nice Is a museum
  • Top notch! I love the beach sight! Thought I still don't like the country!
  • One of Pablo Neruda's houses. It's an impressive living memory museum. It has an audio tour, and the most fascinating things are all the different strange objects he collected. Staff is helpful. However, it's a small place, groups of 10 are allowed and must take turns to move around the house. The view and surroundings are stunning.
  • Beautiful place to experience Pablo's lifestyle and understand a bit of what inspired him as a poet! Must place to go for anyone wanting some inspiration and love in your life
  • The view is stunning but beware the traveler, there is a scam being had by the parking attendant we encountered and a group of young guys. Unclear if it was sex trafficking or a potential robbery. Our tire was stabbed, we were targeted in the parking lot and the attendant was definitely in on it, we overheard them all taking. We managed to get out of a very serious situation an be this was during the off season.
