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 into our Santiago trip itinerary builder and find out what's close by, where to stay, and where to head next.

La Chascona Reviews
Achei maneiríssimo! Você recebe uma espécie de telefone na entrada, com o qual você vai percorrendo todos os ambientes da casa e o áudio vai te contando toda a história. Muito interessante.Vale a pena... more »I thought it was very, very. You get a kind of phone at the entrance, with which you go through all the environments of the house and the audio will tell you the whole story. Very interesting. It's worth it!
Esperaba mucho mas, especialmente, porque la casa de Isla Negra es demasiado espectacular en todo sentido. No conozco la de Valparaíso, pero la de Santiago debe ser la mas deficiente como casa de Neru... more »I was expecting a lot more, especially because the Black Island house is too spectacular in every way. I do not know the Valparaiso, but the Santiago must be the most deficient as Neruda's house.
Excellent museum. Informative about Neruda's life. Good audio tour, neither too short nor too long. House itself was interesting and attractive. Situated in am area with a good mix of bars and restaurants.
Very good and informative museum in one of Pablo Neruda's homes. The tour is a self paced audio tour. The devices can be set to at least English and Spanish. There's a lot of stairs and narrow spaces.
