Visit the Chilean village of Pomaire on a 7-hour tour from Santiago and discover one of the best known pottery villages. Famed for its ceramics, it has been home to a craft producing community since the indigenous tribes settled there in the late 1500s.
What to Expect
Take a day tour to Isla Negra & Pomaire!
Head to the coast to Isla Negra, home to Pablo Neruda’s museum beach house.
Pablo Neruda, a Nobel Prize winner, passed away in 1973. He left behind his remarkable collections both in writing and in physical objects, divided over his 3 houses. In his beach house, see over 3,500 collected pieces of memorabilia, such as masks, bottles, insects, shells, letters, photographs, pieces of boats etc. This is the most remarkable of all his houses, and it is also here that Neruda and his wife are buried…
After lunch, drive towards Pomaire, famous for its traditional handcraft pottery dating back to the 1500s.
Observe local artists, find the best shops for souvenirs and try some typical Chilean dishes. Find some nice sombreros, traditional alpaca ponchos or beautiful handmade (lapiz lazuli) jewelry. On most of the days, enjoy the chance to visit an artist’s workshop and watch him throw pottery on the wheel, so you can see just how fast the artists are able to make these incredible and unique pots.
This is a wonderful, relaxing day out of Santiago. Some time for culture, good food, and for the ladies, also time for buying some great souvenirs!
