Shall I admit that we hadn't heard of Pablo Neruda before? Apparently he is incredibly famous and won the Nobel Prize for literature. We were being transferred from Santiago Airport to Valparaiso the "scenic route" and stopped here for a tour and lunch. We were glad we did, as the house is a living museum, full of a mixture of...

We've seen all Neruda's home, even the secret 4th one, and we couldn't believe that this one would be better than all the rest, but it sure is. His favorite home, and ours too. In a wonderful seaside setting, full of quirky artifacts. The most visited cultural site in Chile for a very good reason. The best of the best.... More

Go early to avoid lines! No matter what you're into, I guarantee that you will find something of interest in this house. What a quirky guy. My only complaints are that the gift shop is very pricey and that my audio set did not work properly (though I am sure this is not typical). Be sure to leave time after... More

We loved our morning at Isla Negra, Pablo Neruda's home. We stopped there on our way from Valparaiso to Santiago--yes, a little out of the way, but well worth the time. Very, very beautiful, fascinating collections of things, and Neruda was such an important and inspiring personage. We had lunch at the restaurant there, sitting outside, and daydreamed. Beautiful

I loved all the three Neruda's houses, but in my opinion, this is the best!! Wonderful place and view, in front of the beach break Isla Negra, like all the others, this house is also like a romance, every room, each object... It worth every chilean pesos, you cannot miss if you have time... Take a local bus in valparaiso... More

We have seen the other two Neruda houses and visiting isla Negra was the completion of our Neruda journey. It's truly inspiring to see the results of a life philosophy and style embodied in this great poet passions. His collections are extensive, the house totally astonishing and the location is just beautiful

I had heard about Neruda but am hardly an expert. I went here as a side trip and I was really inspired by this place. The house is a fantastic museum and you get an electronic tour that has information and quotes by Neruda. I absolutely loved the house, location, his words and the restaurant there. It's all A+.

We took the bus to Isla Negra (which is not an island) and wandered off to see one of Pablo Nerudas three houses located there, directly on the sea. The house is quite special and consists of several small rooms filled with diverse objects, shells, boats in bottles, things from sea, sculptures, glass things, masks etc etc. However; The house...
