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.

The objects of decoration are endless and of various natures, from French bottles, compasses, carrancas, shells, pipes, insects and photos of the time.

Excellent exhibit of what was the home of Pablo Neruda. Stunning view of the chilean coast. Contrary to what the name of the name implies "isla" (island in Spanish) it is located on the main land.
This is my favorite of all of Neruda's houses, the house itself it's beautiful, but also the beach and the surroundings are lovely
