La Chascona, Santiago

(4.4/5 based on 7,000+ 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.

  • It is always good to learn new things and here with the help of their audio technology guide you enteraras a bit of the life of Pablo Neruda in his house. I loved that place where this poet into his creations and know in addition a little more of it. Besides that if you call attention you'll have to visit their other homes in cities near Santiago.

  • 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.
