Beautiful landscape with open air sculptures, also great indoor museums, during the season free open air concerts. (Alas, for liabilitly reasons they stopped serving free champagne last year...)

The artwork is stunning but the real draw are the grounds. A large ranch has been made over to showcase contemporary art. Off the beaten path, but well worth the drive to see.

At the risk of committing an act of lese majeste, the best thing about this place is the setting, a beautiful park in a beautiful landscape far from traffic noise and city bustle. In that garden you can view numerous sculptures in different styles by different international artists, including of course by the venerated Mr. Atchugarry himself whose name seems... More

Our visit enabled us to see Atchugarry's work from when it is a crayon sketch on a block of marble to when skilled artisans sand and polish the final piece. We were able to walk around the workshop, the outdoor storage area with huge blocks of marble waiting to become beautiful works of art - some many feet tall, others... More

We spent a very nice hour touring the sculpture gardens one weekday morning in mid-February and there was hardly anyone else there. The sculptures are interesting and nice, but it is the overall layout and gardens that make the place special. It was a great “walk in the park” and it’s free!

Pablo Atchugarry is a world class sculptor and he has constructed a beautiful museum / gallery / grounds to exhibit sculptors work and promote the arts. Well worth the visit located 25 minutes north of Punta in Mananatiales, a very small seaside town worth the visit as well. The beaches here along the coastline are excellent with some strong surf.

Great Museum! A must see. The Madonna by Pablo Atchugarry is a masterpiece! The pictures by Aurelio Amendola are sensual and spectacular. The setting is idyllic.

I went to the Fundacion Athugarray a Monday of December. Unfortunately it was closed. I could not check that on the website as it does not mention the opening hours, not even a phone number. It is a pity because the location is a little remote at 4,5 km from Manantiales and I wasted my time. I could see the... More
