Cultural immersion into Vilaro' place, with a beautiful view of the bay and the nice white architecture of the building. While I am not personally fond of his art, It is a nice visit and there is a cafe on top to enjoy the view,

A very unusual building - organic, vaguely oriental forms made from white plaster that look like a confectioner went wild with egg white and frosting - in a beautiful setting on a cliff above the ocean. It contains works by a beloved local artist, Carlos Paez Vilaro, who also developed and built the museum itself. Worth a visit because of... More

Very pleasant walking among the art work. Some what surprising the variety of the work, all of which was very large. It looked like a true artist's workoshop. Something for everyone

Scenic views. We all miss Mr Paez Vilarô. The gift shop is lovely. The place did not look extremely tidy.

Carlos Paez Vilaro created this dreamcastle during a period of 36 years on the amazing coast of Punta Ballenas. The house is full of his beautiful colourful art works and the documentary about his life and achievements with his voice-over made a big impression as well. Such a unique person, full of energy and love for life that it is... More

What a treat to find such s wonderful Art Museum in an astonishing location. Get there early before the tour busses arrive. Pay the cover for the restaurant. The tour busses don't have time so you will get to enjoy a very private lunch in one of the most beautiful settings on earth. Be sure to take the time to... More

Go just before sunset for a wonderful experience, including the creator reading a poem about the sunset (in Spanish).

Located in Punta Ballena near Punta del Este, Uruguay. Amazing place to watch the sunset and enjoy a good meal even if you are not a guest there. The service a bit slow but besides that, good!
