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

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.
