Amazing and magic place!!

Beside the extreme heat, it's an astonishing place to visit and enjoy the sunset. A little bit crowded and expensive but totally worth of it!

If you go to Punta del Este you have to visit CasaPueblo. Best place in Punta. Wonderful view and scenery. The artist Carlos left impressive and beautiful paintings. You can also buy his paintings.

This beautiful museum and building was the loving work of Uruguayan artist Carlos Paez Vilaro. Originally begun as his private residence, he added and built over the years in a spectacular location overlooking the water. It is a maze of rooms at different levels housing his paintings and sculptures. There is now a restaurant and hotel as part of the... More

Casa Pueblo was the best part of Punta Del Este tour for me! Went there on a ship's organized tour during our call there. Unfortunately it was only a 30 min visit due to time restrictions. I would love to spend more time at this museum. The whole place itself has reminded me Greek islands somehow. Those white roofs perhaps.... More

Some friends took us to Casapueblo and I was quite overwhelmed by this artist. This is just one of his studios/homes, in fact part of the complex is still a private residence of the family. Take the time to watch the video about the life of Carlos Paez Vilaro who created this place. He created an amazing amount of work... More

Located in Punta Ballena. This museum was built by the Uruguayan artist Carlos Paez Vilaro. It is a monument to architecture, with a beautiful museum with paintings and sculptures of Vilaro. There is also a restaurant and a hotel in the same place. The museum is open from 10am to 6pm. Due to its architecture it is not suitable for... More

We loved our visit to the museum. We started with the movie which I highly recommend to give you a background on the artist. We also loved the artwork which I only wish there was more of. Before I started my Uruguay research prior to our trip, I had not heard the true story of Uruguay's rugby team and their... More
