“Charming and instructional”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2014

This unusual home of the Nobel prize winning poet Pablo Neruda is a wonderful way to learn about the political history of the mid 20th century through the eyes of a poet. Tour includes a recorded tour guide in the language one requires, so it is easy to understand and move from room to room.

“Nice house but the Isla Negra's house is better”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

It was nice to visit Pablo Neruda's house in Santiago. I did like his house in Isla Negra much more though. But the neighborhood here was very pleasant to walk around. You are very close to the Patio Bellavista here and its definitely a place to have lunch, relax and find some cute gifts to bring with you from the trip.

“The Poets House”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 2, 2014

Pablo neruda is a fantastic poet often translated into many different languages for good reason. His house was a very interesting way to learn about his life, death love and work.
