La Sebastiana, Valparaiso

A multicolored, tiered house on top of a hill, La Sebastiana provided the setting for the writing of some of the world's beloved poetic masterpieces. Today, Pablo Neruda's former residence pays tribute to the artist's legacy and contains artworks, 1950s furniture, and quirky bric-a-brac collected over the years. Visit early in the morning or towards closing time to avoid the crowds and long lines at the entrance. To find out how to plan a trip to Valparaiso, use our trip itinerary maker.
