Nice small museum-house. The Santiago house of Neruda with his style in all the details. You have to wait a few minutes because they allow a limited number of guests. Located in a neighborhood with a lot of restaurants and very close to the San...More

Cool place to visit and is right next door to Patio Bellavista and Cerro San Cristóbal. La Chascona was Pablo Neruda a Nobel literatura price winner residence and now a museo. Chascona means Disheveled ( despeinada) in the natives language.

Our daughter recommended we visit Pablo Neruda's Santiago house and I am glad we did. It is a fabulous place filled with amazing items of art and curiosities. The structure of the house is a delight as well. We would return for another visit.

No, no parking. Taxi or Uber is the best option.

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.
