Pablo Neruda was a great poet and diplomat and had a wonderfully quirky personality. His three homes in Chile all reflect his love of life, laughter, friends and the sea. La Chascona, in Santiago just two blocks from the funicular, is a fascinating glimpse into...More

Interesting space. My husband is familiar with his work and appreciated the visit much more than I did. Regardless, worth the visit. I don't want to spoil the experience for you so I won't post all the photos.

Me and my wife visited La Chascona since she insisted so much in doing so. I found it interesting. It was nice to see some places where part of Neruda's and even Santiago's history took place. I recommend using the sound guide.

Santiago is at least 2 hours by car from Valpariso. It can be done if you are in a time crunch.. Ask your Santiago hotel if they can arrange a car for you.
