Museo Casa La Chascona is the former home of Chileâ€™s Nobel Prize-winning poet, Pablo Neruda. La Chascona means â€śuncombedâ€ť and is a reference to the unruly hair of Matilde Urrutia, his secret lover at the time and later his third wife.
Built in 1953, and mostly designed by the poet, the house is a bizarre structure filled with strange and wonderful things, including Nerudaâ€™s enormous collection of books. Guided tours in English, French and German cost $7. Tours in Spanish cost $5. You must make reservations before visiting.
