Neruda’s house on the hill.
Built on a hill overlooking the colorful city of Valparaíso, and beyond that the Pacific Ocean, La Sebastiana served as one of the residences of the world-famous Chilean poet Pablo Neruda, who lived there on and off from 1961 until his death in 1973. Today, the five-story home is a museum that draws visitors eager to view Neruda’s collections of art and maritime trinkets.
