“What to expect.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

The view from La Sebastiana is great. You have to pay for admittance and you will be issued an audio device for a self-guided tour in the language of your choosing. The tour is not long, and you aren't supposed to take pictures of the inside of the house, but the visit is worth it for fans of Neruda's poetry. The map of the America's on the wall in his study is a real treasure.

“Worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 4, 2013

We had already seen Nuruda's House in Isla Negra and this one seemed to offer more than the one in Valparaiso.

“Wonderful Home”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

Amazing view of Valparaiso from the home. Extremely eclectic, apparently like the owner. Audio tour was very good as I didn't know very much about the man before touring his home. The parties must have been great!

“Must visit in Valparaiso”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 2, 2013

The house reminded us so much of Salavdor Dali's houses in Spain, even Cesar Manrique's in Lanzarote. It is a fabulous place to visit and the views are fantastic. No wonder he said that it was so nice of the pacific ocean to come to him. We loved the bar as well as the views and could picture him behind it.

This is truly worth seeing. I don't typically do the audio tours, but for this place, it's a must. We loved it.
