Fodor's Expert Review Casa Escuela

Pisco Elqui Museum/Gallery

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