This house and museum dedicated to Carlos Páez Vilaró is worth seeing if you are in the Punta del Este area. The location on Punta Ballena was striking and the museum was quite interesting as well. We were staying in Punta del Este for the week and ventured out to this place during our stay. I believe it was the... More

Really beautiful view. It was a shame that I went with a city tour and did not have enough time to come in.

Really worth a stop. The building is gorgeous and unusual. Tour the premises and view his art as well as buy it. The restaurant was closed when we were there but looks lovely.

The Casapueblo itself is larger than you think but the area open to the public is probably smaller than you think. Nevertheless it is beautiful, interesting, even for those not artistically inclined. Casapueblo is actually 30 min bus ride (and then a 1km alk from bus stop) from of Punta del este, heading towards Montevideo. Therefore bear this in mind... More

I have to be honest - I knew nothing about the artist before checking in. I know a lot more now…as a jaded international business traveller - hotels on the whole bore me…I was on holiday in Uruguay - out of season, and a friend told me to go - "not the best hotel in the world - but an... More

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
