Fodor's Review

Gabriela Mistral, born in nearby Vicuña, grew up in Montegrande and considered the tiny village her hometown. Her family lived in the schoolhouse where her elder sister taught. This was later turned into a museum and displays some relics from the poet's life. Visitors can also visit the Nobel Prize–winning poet's tomb on a nearby hillside.
