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 beautiful park of sculptures from various artists of South America. The park is huge, there is a little train I suppose to visit the park but of course it was not working. I saw some very nice sculptures of Pablo Atchugarry through the windows of a gallery. I could also see some works in progress as there was nobody to prevent me from going near the atelier!

I live in Punta, yet I never tire of visiting the Fundacion. Pablo Atchugarry is Uruguay's greatest living artist, and a wonderful person. The Fundacion is intended to showcase the works of other artists, as part of Pablo's desire to help young artists, and those just getting started. His own works are at the back of the property, in the third building. Also throughout the summer season, there are concerts and events almost every weekend. The location is about 10 minutes past La Barra, and very easy to find.

Sculptor Pablo Achugarry has made a dream come true. His foundation has become a must for Punta del Este visitors. The excellent galleries with natural light and huge glass windows offers exhibitions the whole year round, while during the summer months there are important concerts and courses. The entrance to the galleries and sculpture park is free and it is a real pleasure to walk among the sculptures at any time of day. His own workshop is there and the visitor can have a hint of the origin of Achugarri's magnificent pieces. If you enjoy art, don't miss it.
