La Chascona, Santiago
(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.

  • Recommend to anyone who likes poetry and history. Good is watching the movie the POSTMAN and POET before going to the Museum. The visit was very well oriented, organized and beautiful space. Auto Guide worked great. Come back with pleasure.

  • I loved the House, had spent many times out and I had not realized account which was the Chascona at that site. Inside it is wonderful, it has a very nice view, is impressive the amount of valuable objects that had Pablo Neruda and the design of your House. I highly recommend a visit.

  • For all those who want to learn a little more about Pablo Neruda, can not visit La Chascona, one of the three houses of Neruda in Chile. The entrance ticket is a little high. At the start of the tour, they deliver you an audio system with buttons assigned to each place of the House, allowing you to hear the information that corresponds to each space. The possibility of a video with the history of the House, but that Yes, it must be before entering the rooms in the home, since once you start the course, you can't go back. At the end of the tour, you get to a kind of shop where you can buy the books of Neruda, and other souvenir with allusion to the poet.

  • Very interesting museum for anyone not just nerudo fans! Very calm secluded area of the city as well
  • BEST place to feel peace and breath poetry. Meet Neruda's house snd visit every single corner of his house.
  • This was my first visit to La Chascona and final house of Pablo Neruda to visit. It is interesting to see the uniqueness of each home. The price to visit Pablo Neruda's home is a little high but it does include a free audio guided tour in various languages.
  • A welcoming place to know a bit of the history of Pablo Neruda, a very important poet-diplomat and politician of Chile. The place has a audio guide in different languages.
  • Awesome place to know a little about the history of Pablo Neruda. There are audio guide in three languages that help a lot.
