I didn't really know much about Neruda, but my son loves his poetry so we decided to go on a tour. We had just done the Free Walking Tour of Santiago and it finished outside La Chascona. We went in and were able to join the next tour.
Neruda's life story is fascinating and our guide did a good job of telling us about in English. The unusual design of the house is based on boats and is very interesting. Seeing the huge shoes and hearing the story about them...Well it's really worth a visit.
