Peace and tranquility at Casapueblo. I had always loved visiting the museum at Casapueblo in Punta Ballena, and once had the pleasure of meeting the artist Carlos Paez Villaro -- such a humble and talented man. A few years ago he was kind enough to sign one of his prints for me. I always wondered what it was like for... More

We went with a group on a warm summer day and managed to enjoy the house despite the many people there. The home, built over a 40-year period is beautifully appointed and looks out over the azure waters of Punta. The views are extraordinary and the home amazing. Would be nice to add some parking and perhaps a little cafe... More

There is nothing like an artist's home to give you a better appreciation of their art, style, philosophy and way of life. The birds' nest like dwelling with nest or room after room shows the artist's insatiable urge to produce or create. Informal and accessible, the artist's works are open for show with only a couple behind glass. it is... More

If one has to single out the best Uruguayan attraction, Casapueblo will be the invitable winner of any ballot. Beautiful construction, full of historical content, with fantastic artistic works. The sunset ceremony with the poem by the deceased owner, heared over the sound system, became a tradition, and should not be missed. The adjourning restaurant gives you a chance of... More

This really looked a very interesting place to visit but it was too expensive in price for me and my family to feel it was worthwhile seeing. We did get to go inside down a very steep and narrow stairwell where we waited in a line for ages. It appeared many others thought the same. We did however get some... More

The house is amazing, different from anything I have seen so far. You can visit the museum, grab something to eat (quite expensive) or have a coffee while enjoying the view of the ocean. The museum part is very small, a few rooms with Carlos Vilaró art ( paintings, sculptures, etc). I liked the video about the artist art, it's... More

Sunset at Casapueblo is breathtaking. One should go with time to visit the atellier and walk arround trough the amazing construction buit by Páez Vilaro, famous artist. Nowadays it is a hotel but some areas can be visited. There is a fee to access the atellier.
