Trip Planner: South America / Uruguay / Maldonado Department / Maldonado / Punta Ballena / Museo – Taller de Casapueblo
Learn about the life and work of painter, sculptor, writer, and composer Carlos Páez Vilaró at Museo – Taller de Casapueblo. Housed within a former summer house and studio designed by the artist himself, the museum and art gallery display the range of Páez Vilaró's exuberant work. He found deep and abiding inspiration in the African candombe music in the tenement where it flourished, and also traveled the world, exhibiting his paintings and other visual media. The museum's architecture alone makes the trip worthwhile: the white, warped-looking structure was built using traditional methods, using wood, concrete, and stucco. You'll notice that the maze-like complex contains no straight lines inside. As well as the museum and gallery, the building also contains a four-star hotel and a cafe.

很早就听过，见到后感觉就像海边版的米拉之家！非常漂亮，很喜欢他的作品，，夏天来的话应该会更漂亮！ more »I've heard about it for a long time, and it feels like a seaside version of Mira House! Very beautiful, like his works, summer should be more beautiful!
Si vas a punta del este vale la pena parar en casa pueblo , un hotel-museo de carlos Páez . Es con entrada (la compras ahí y menores De 12 no pagan) visita corta , una vista increíble , arquitectura e... more »If you go to the east end it is worth sparking at home village, a hotel-museum of Carlos Páez. It is with entrance (shopping there and under 12 do not pay) short visit, an amazing view, spectacular architecture. You can meet, read and buy works by Páez. Nice experience
Iconic spot, so it's a must see in the area. The museum part is small but gives a good overview of the artist. Watch the documentary. There are chairs in the theatre, but people tend to crowd by the doorway. So peek in to see how full it really is.
Really interesting building with an amazing location to see the sunset. I think the museum could be improved with some more paintings but the whole thing is absolutely stunning and worth seeing.
