Casapueblo is a dream place! It has history, beauty and nature at the same place! You can visit the "oficinas" de trabalho, paintings, a samall museum, unbelievable nature and the fantastic story of life of Carlos Páez Villarò. It's really awesome! I strongly recommend a visit!

Casapueblo was the highlight of our visit to Punta del Estate, Uruguay. This was the home of the artist and musician Carlos Paez Vilaro. The architecture is very similar and probably in part copied from the famous architect Antoni Gaudi from Barcelona who designed the world famous Sagrada Família cathedral. However, Vilaro's expertise extended to numerous areas including painting, pottery,... More

Once you are in Punta del Este, don't loose the opportunity to know this house/hotel/museum. The Museum is full of arts from the artist Carlos Páez Vilaró who built the house. I recommend to watch a short film presented in one of those rooms, to know about that place and artist. The coffee shop inside is very nice.

You can find nice items to buy, paintings, books and handcrafts as well as many mandalas. Liked it but I was expecting more museum theme. The pictures of the hotel beside the museum are nice. Es bonito y colorido, pinturas, mandalas y artesanias; sin embargo esperaba algo más directamente relacionado con museo como tal. Las fotos del hotel desde afuera... More

I really enjoyed my visit to the Museo-Taller de Casapueblo, the former workshop of renowned artist Carlos Páez Vilaró. I'm not usually much of an art fan, but I was very much taken by his prolific style and its evolution over time. He was not only an artist but a sculptor, photographer, muralist, writer and composer. There is a very... More

This is a beautiful site, but recognize that it is filled with the work of one artist, You will either love it or hate it. The structure is amazing, a work of art in itself. Various tiles and prints are available for sale.
