Built on a rocky headland overlooking the ocean, Casa de Isla Negra commemorates the life and work of this world-famous poet. The residence features a ship-like interior and a number of eccentric collections, including a huge number of shells in the "Under the Sea" room. Watch the short video about Neruda's life in the lobby. Walk under the low ceilings, through narrow passageways, and across the creaking wooden floors of the rooms decorated with ship figureheads, maps, ships in bottles, masks, and wooden carvings from all over the world. See the huge tusk of a narwhal, which Neruda brought from Norway. Enter the master bedroom, and notice how the bed faces windows with a clear view of the ocean. Neruda lived in the house with his third wife, and the claim that this was his favorite residence is supported by the fact that both spouses were buried here.

Museum of Pablo Neruda's house (and supposedly the best!). 7,000 pesos each, well worth it. Opens at 10am I think, so get there in the morning (the buses were arriving as we left around midday...

The experience of being in the house where Neruda spent the last years of his life is magical. We analyze many details and objects of the place with their narration devices, which are available in Spanish, English and Portuguese. I went there about 16:10 and could only enter the house one hour later, because of the long line. Not only the interior of the house is amazing, but the view is also magnificent, the beach and the seagulls and the clear sky... It was totally worth the price.
The house and its view is beautiful. The house is full of history and stories of it's curious and interesting owner. The audio tour guide they provide though it's not good, it's too much information for each room. The tour guides they had years ago were much more memorable and engaging. We were very disappointed by this change, hopefully they will bring back the tourists guides instead of the audio guide. Tip: feel free to ask questions to the attendants (overseeing people) they are friendly and at least the lady with who we talked knew a lot of interesting things.
