I like this place. You pay 200 pesos to go in, approximately US$ 8.00 but it is almost a religious experience. Past the entrance is a video display which runs for about 20 minutes. The artist, Vilaro, started painting whilst young, but then he met Picasso in the early 50's and then switched to his own version of cubism, except... More

It was lovely to visit a museum dedicated to the artist and to enjoy viewing his works. The museum was not over commercialised which was also enjoyable.

I have to confess ignorance of Casapueblo and Carlos Paez Vilaro prior to this trip to UY (MVD & PDE) even as an art enthusiast. Boy, am I glad to have decided to do a quick search on Trip Advisor of PDE sights before signing up for a bus tour of the area. I loved every aspect of my visit... More

This is a good museum to visit while in Puente Del Este. The architecture of the building is really nice and the art is nice. I actually enjoyed looking at the biography of the artist and hearing about his many travels throughout the world that inspired his art.

Home and atelier of renowned artist Carlos Páez Vilaró. Located up on a rocky bluff overlooking the ocean with outstanding views. Inside works of the artist with small shops and cafe in white complex, resembling Spanish-Moroccan architecture building with many rooms. A must see if you are interested in the arts.

It's a magical place, both from the geographical and natural point of view, as per the history and art. The life of the artist and the evolution of building are very linked to each other, and Paez Vilaró was a very interesting person and artist. The best option is go in the afternoon and stay to the sunset, to enjoy... More

I've been to Casa Pueblo during my Carnival trip this year, in which I went to Uruguay. I planned to go from Montevideo to Punta del Este by car and stopped at Casa Pueblo. It's an amazing place to visit. Very interesting building, nice view, funny design... And you will love the cats! I'd like to go there to be... More

An easy drive from Punta, this former home of artist Carlos Paez is now open to the public as a museum and small cafe. While much of the house is closed off, it is still interesting to visit and the views are outstanding.
