A very inspiring place on arrival, a beaming white building with beautiful and unusual architecture. But the exhibition is small and it really doesn't take long to walk through the rooms. To make the most of the trip, we decided to have lunch at the hotel there. There was a set fee to enter the hotel grounds which was deducted... More

Casapueblo is a wonderful place to go with time to spare; the view is simply amazing, as well as the architecture and the Mirò's artworks. Taking the time to have some coffee enjoying the whole atmosphere is a one of a kind experience. It's also possible to buy some paintings and replicas.

Casa Pueble is fruit of an amazing inspiration I don't remember all its history details, but facing that beautiful unusual architecture, history and details do not help, as it doesn't need any help. It's just amazing. Congratulations to the great artist and congratulations to people that keep that as it deserve to be kept

I wouldn't go back here, it is an overpriced look through someones house. Very modern art and style and not my taste. The cafe only served drinks, would have been nice to sit and stay for lunch. Souvenirs are super expensive!

We enjoyed sunset at the restaurant/bar, not the gallery. The views are stunning, you really shouldn't miss the views at sunset from this place at if possible. It's very important to note that getting here is a pain in the butt, and expensive (or we got completely ripped off). We left from the Conrad Hotel and hailed a taxi. $40..EACH... More

The complex is large and rambling. But the museum is tiny; essentially consisting of two rooms and two gift shops -- each of which, notably, is larger than the art display spaces. Tells you much about the priorities, here. That's all you get for your $200 entrance fee. The rest is thoroughly cordoned off, unless you're planning to drop more... More

A cross between an Italian trulli and a sandcastle, it's like nothing you'll see elsewhere. Much of the artwork is Picasso-like and colorful. A fun visit, if a small venue.

Simply stunning. A must see if you are in the Punta del Este area. Go there for the sunset. My only wish is that we had access to more of the property for exploring, but I understand because if I went as a hotel guest I would not care for so many people walking through.

Definitely go see this place. Yeah, they charge a bit much, but the place is beautiful. The architecture is Gaudi meets Greek isles, and the art reminds me of Picasso. It all makes for great photos.
