La Chascona, Santiago

4.6
#1 of 217 in Museums in Chile
A former home away from home for the famous Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, La Chascona now serves as a museum dedicated to the artist's life and career. Even today, you can see Neruda's left-field tastes in the design of the house. The living room, made to feel like a lighthouse, and the dining room, designed like a ship's cabin, pays homage to the great poet's love of the sea. Look for the two-faced portrait of Matilde Urrutia, Neruda's fiery redheaded lover. Inspect it closely to see the hidden image of Neruda's face whispering into his forbidden lover's ear. Reserve your tickets at least a day in advance to avoid disappointment. PutLa Chascona into our Santiago trip itinerary builder and find out whats close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

  • Such a beuatiful home full of elegant pieces of furniture, book collection etc. The views are out of this world.
  • Very interesting museum. I really like Pablo Neruda’s poems.
  • Amazing place. Neruda should be also respected as interior designer :-)
  • A nice self guides tour through the house museum. If it is crowded it is difficult to see and get around. But as it is self guided you can take your time.
  • Amazing place. I wanna live in that house!
