  • We just saw it from the outside. There is a small coffee shop, very clean bathrooms and a local sale of souvenirs. We thought the price of admission was high.

  • Of the same style as the Chascona, with perhaps an affects fewer, but still as captivating interest

  • La Sebastiana is the charm of being one of the residences of Pablo Neruda. Have a beautiful view.

  • Great place with incredible views and an audio-tour showing the writer's desires and loves.
  • Very interesting tour through the house. Worth visiting and beautiful views!
  • It's ok. Great to know about his life, although we found it a littler pricey (6 thousand pesos) for what it is (something you can see in less than 10 minutes). Plus a price like that makes culture and our history inaccessible for many and it shouldn't.
  • Very well put together with plenty of information and a nice atmosphere. The handheld tour is interesting and fun!
  • Be prepared to stand in line!!! Unlike La Chascona in Santiago, this one is crowded. At times it's hard to walk around the narrow hallways. Try to go in off peak hours. Simply stunning! Must do
