Today we headed off on our two day road trip to Valparaiso stopping off at Isla Negra, to visit Pablo Neruda's house. This houses an eccentric & eclectic collection of artefacts and is well worth a visit to give you a peek into Neruda's character.
What can I say? An architectural enthusiasts dream! The architecture ranges from shanty style houses clinging to the cliffs that surround the port, to delicious Art Nouveau buildings housing museos, interspersed with ascensores that allow the visitor to easily access the scenic streets up above the port.
Lovely bars, cafes and restaurants abound, which allows the visitor an indulgent escape from the bustle of Santiago, for all the senses.
