The architecture alone is worth the trip to see this multilevel house that Villaro built over the years. It is also a great place to discover the art of vilaro. I had no qualms having been charged to visit the house .

Simply amazing views and house. Friendly staff to help. I found the art a bit pricey, but the story of the man amazing. House and museum us just spectacular. Must see if you're in the area

CasaPueblo, 10/15 km from Punta Del Este, gave me the impression to be the typical place where tourists are "invited" to leave there their money in exchange of little or nothing. There is an art gallery with the works of the Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró (admission 160 UYU). Even if you want just to drink something and enjoying the... More

A definite sunset viewing place! Interesting history of the artist and his works explained here in the introductory film.

Its a nice place, with a interesting architecture and a beautiful view of sunset, worth it. I recommend you rent a car and go there by yourself, its more cool and its almost the same price of those tourism groups, and of course you can use the car to know another places all along the day.

This was the mos spectacular sunset I´ve seen, much better than the one in Santorini, which is famous. The sun was setting while we listened to a record of Vilaro´s poem made when he lived on this house.

Your trip to Punta del Este isn't complete without experiencing Casapueblo. We had no idea what to expect and didn't plan enough time for this gem. Allow time, and go to the bar or restaurant to absorb the surroundings.

I wish we had biked there... Totally beautiful. Small exhibit of Vilaro's artwork, a gift shop and a limited resto bar. I would strongly recommend biking there (10-15k from punta del este) about an hour before sunset, and sneaking in a few cervesas or a bottle of medio y medio as the bar was pretty pricey (not that it stopped...

This is a cool place - you can easily take a bus there and back - there is a mile long walk up to to Casa Pueblo from where the bus drops you off. It's a pretty spectacular walk, with the homes of the wealthy lining both sides, and ocean views from each direction as well. Just the walk is... More
