La Chascona - Review

La Chascona was one of the three houses of the famous Poet Pablo Neruda built for his secret lover Matilde Urrutia. The house is one of the most fascinating place to witness- giving a rare peak into the Poet’s co-designed spaces which carry an essence of his mind. From intimate reading places to the colorful dining room, the place oozes the couple’s artistic taste.

Highlights include:

  • Authentic furniture and silverware.
  • The painting of Matilde with two heads painted by Mexican artist Diego Rivera among other pieces of art.
  • Regular art exhibitions held here.

  • La Chascona is Pablo Nevada's Santiago home. It continues the Oceania or sea theme and slightly resembles a boat. It is built over several levels, (making use of the slope of the landscape and optimum views) and has narrow staircases, so not particularly appropriate for strollers or wheel chairs. Each level is reached by use of a short outdoor walkway or stairs. It has an excellent audio guide which covers the life of the poet, and the history of Chile at the time. The home, belongings and gardens have been well preserved, giving a good insight into his life. It is well worth a visit. At busy times you can expect to wait, as space is limited as are audio guides.

  • La Chascona was an enchanting place. It is one of the homes of Chilean Nobel Prize winning poet Pablo Neruda. Pictures aren't allowed in interior spaces but can be taken outside. Even if you are not familiar with his work, you will feel intrigued by the home and feel the love shared there.

  • This is one of Pablo Neruda's houses that now is a museum open to the community. In this place you can see how this famous poet lived, and enjoy all those beautiful corners where he shared many times with his woman and friends. This property is managed by a private foundation that is in charge of all his inheritance. A 40 minutes audio guided tour inside the house-museum is available for the visitors for $CLP 7,000 (USD 11). I highly recommend to visit this place.

  • It is interesting to know more about the important Pablo Neruda. There is an audioguide (At least english, portuguese and spanish) really efficient and which leaves you free to visit at any moment without needing to wait for a guide visit. The entrance is not too cheap for foreigners. If you travelling low cost, there are other points in Santiago for free and also interesting.

  • Very interesting place. Neatly melds personality, politics and culture. Amazing living room art and artifacts.
