On my very short stay in Punta del Este I went to visit this special house ... Worth a visit but not worth to have a meal here .. Small museum but spend a couple of hours here discovering the universe of this amazing artist ...

Visited Casapueblo in March 2017. The hotel/museum are located on a spectacular short and rocky peninsula with excellent views of Punta Del Este.

You must stop here if you are heading to PdE. Cool architecture, nice views and the art works are really interesting. The ticket is cheap and it's worth every penny.
