Departure from the hotel in the morning heading for the central coast. The tour’s destination is Isla Negra, a small beachside resort in the El Quisco district that has earned its fame around the world due to its lovely surroundings and intimate relationship with poet Pablo Neruda. He wrote most of his work in this residence, that houses a museum today. Built in 1939, the building displays a peculiar architecture due to the combination of low-cost materials with artistic ingeniousness. Inside, collections of bottles, figureheads, shells and other objects picked up by Neruda during his life can be admired. After visiting the museum and on the way to Santiago, a stopover at Pomaire follows. It’s a small village of artisans in the Melipilla district, where visitors may shop for crafts –especially clay objects – and enjoys lunch in one of the restaurants serving typical Chilean food. At the end of tour we return to Santiago.
