La Chascona, Santiago Reviews
Great place to go in Santiago. The included audio tour was well made and my six year old daughter could understand. The little store after was expensive but really beautiful.
One of three of Pablo Neruda's home, the Chascona in Santiago was the refuge for the poet and his last wife. The house can now be visited as part of the Pablo Neruda foundation. You start with a film about hos life and then listening to an audio guide you can explore each room and understand Pablo's life. A very interesting visit which should be part of the visit of hos other two properties? La Sebastiana in Valparaiso and his main home on Isla Negra. You can also buy some souvenirs and books in the gift shop. The salt and pepper set is a really cool one :). The tour lasts about 40mins and costs 7000 Chilean pesos.
You can't come to Santiago and not visit this place, it has audio tour it's not very expensive and it gives you and inside of the life of one the most important latinoamerican writers of all times
Very good option to expend an afternoon if you have some extra time in Santiago. The neighborhood is full of bars and restaurants. The audio guide is quite complet and you can learn a lot about Pablo and the house itself. The entrance fee is quite high for south America standards and some rooms cannot be visited.
Incredible... A must visit for all tourists. Cheaper with INSIC.
