Come to know the beaches of Isla Negra in the region of Valparaíso and visit the House museum Pablo Neruda, one of the most famous poets in Chile.
Isla Negra is a coastal area in El Quisco commune in central Chile, some 45 km (70 km by road) south of Valparaiso and 96 km (110 km by road) west of Santiago.
It is best known as the residence of Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, who lived there at Casa de Isla Negra (with long periods of travel and exile) from 1939 until his death in 1973. The area was christened by Neruda himself, after the dark outcrop of rocks just offshore. It literally means "black island" in Spanish. The Casa de Isla Negra is now a museum that is well visited all year around and especially during summer.
Every year on Neruda's birthday (July 12), there are celebrations, both at the house and in the artisans' square nearby. There are poetry readings, music and picnics on the beach
