Villa Cultural Huilquilemu - Museum Talca - Chile

The Villa Cultural Huilquilemu is a magnificently restored house now open to the public under the guise of a museum. Originally built in 1850, the house is impressive with its long corridors, wooden ceilings and beautiful gardens that feature sequoia, araucarias and oak trees. The Universidad Católica del Maule has administrative authority and has infused religious and folk art, statues and a library in honor of regional writers such as Neruda and Pablo de Rokha. There is also a restaurant at Huilquilemu.
