10th September. Started at the Pablo Naruda house La Sebastiano, high in the hills above the Port. The Poe became a Chilean Senator and won the Nobel Frize for Literature. He had arranged 80 years ago: to rescue 2,000
Spanish republican refuges at the end of the Civil War; chartering the ship ‘Winnipeg.’ The house was rather quirky, set over 5 floors but offering a panoramic view of both city and bay.
We also enjoyed
a walk down the hills and through the city centre, using 3 of the 7 now elderly funicular railways. We also visited the Naval and Maritime Museum, and the Fine Arts Gallery.
