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.

  • Strolling through Neruda's house, you get a sense of the man. Quirky, interesting and vibrant. I enjoyed seeing his collections, artwork and passions. The house itself is quaint and artistic. 
  • La Chascona was the home of Pablo Neruda in Santiago. Interesting is the visit to the home of one of the characters most influential country in the 20TH century. It is a visit by the different rooms of your House (rebuilt by his wife), well explained with an audioguide. It is worth seeing the video introduction to the visit. Input: 6,000 pesos.

  • I was visiting La Chascona with my friends who were visiting Santiago and was a success, visit Pablo Neruda's home since they were able to learn more than the history of Chile and at the same time enjoy visiting this interesting and beautiful House! At the beginning of the visit, there is a room with a projector where you can see a very interesting video of the life of Pablo Neruda!

  • 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.
