Inspirock Rating:
4.4/5 based on 6,500+ reviews on the web
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. Put La Chascona on your schedule, and learn what else deserves a visit by using our Santiago travel itinerary planner.

  • Excellent ride for those who like Neruda and for those who do not know is a chance to get to know the history of the country. Neruda's House is beautiful, a work of art. I was delighted with every detail. Deserves a few hours a day to book visit the site.
