The House of Violeta Parra is located in the city of San Carlos.  Violeta Parra was a famous folk musician who rose from modest circumstances to compose such songs as Gracias a la Vida, which has been interpreted by several international singers.  Tragically, Violeta Jarra commited suicide at age 50 in Santiago.  This house, which is a national monument, is considered a memorial to her life and work.
