  • It is an ideal place to discover the life of Gabriela Mistral. There are a lot of photos, objects and archives of the poet, so it is easy to be impressed on the visit. In addition, the place is very quiet, attention at the great entrance and exit awaits a rich mote with ossicles.

  • The Museum that preserves the House and belongings of Gabriela Mistral, located in vicuña, 70 km from La Serena, allows a meeting of visitors with the great poet. It reveals the beautiful soul of this artist and his creative ability. The Museum is well maintained and has added more interactive tools. It is worth visiting it.
