This spectacular home was the residence of Pablo Neruda, the acclaimed Chilean poet who won the Nobel Prize for Literature. The home has its own unique style, in great part designed by the poet himself, and can be found at the bottom of San Cristóbal Hill. It was built in 1955 by Pablo and his wife, Matilde. There is a beautiful library filled with a vast collection of books, paintings and other objects belonging to Neruda. It is also the headquarters of the Pablo Neruda Foundation.

If you have ever been in love, you will enjoy this tour.
A wonderful glimpse into the mind of a modern genius and the world he created to live in each day.
On the tour, you'll learn why water tastes better in colored glass and how Neruda was one of the first victims of Pinochet's dictatorship.

It is an interesting little house where Pablo Neruda maintained one of his mistresses. It is a piece of the life of one of Latin America's greatest poets. The house itself is a blend of colonial architecture with the personal touches from Neruda that makes it stand out on its own.
