  • What to say...just go and experience this full immersion in Neruda world. You will enjoy the house itself and the great view on the city. 
  • The House is very colorful and bucolic. Very interesting to see how the poet memorized everything and sought inspiration in every detail. The audio guide in Portuguese you explain everything. You take in the range of 30 minutes inside the House. The view is fascinating, to see all Valparaiso. The attraction is always packed. Access by car is easy.

  • 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
