Casa de Isla Negra, Isla Negra

4.7
#1 of 14 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.

  • Unforgettable experience. Best plans relatively close to Santiago. The breeze from the Pacific is very cold even in summer. Wonderful photos... can be combined with a visit to a vineyard.

  • The place is a dream! But also the entire organization is impeccable! It should be a little patience to get to the House, but the audioguide and the attention of the attendees is excellent!

  • It's worth it! Out some of Chile's tourist circuit however is very good and worth it. Is far from Santiago but is wonderful! The location is beautiful and the House sensational! Has audio description in several languages with tel and in Portuguese. Loved it! Input a little salty. Restaurant at the expensive place.

  • 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.
