Museo - Taller de Casapueblo, Punta del Este

4.5
#1 of 92 in Museums in Uruguay
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.

  • In parallel in Punta del Este punta del Este which is a few kilometres away. Sea Palace built with material from an artist uruguajo. Definitely particular architecture, is one of the symbols of Uruguay. The halls are enriched by works, paintings and sculptures, designed by the artist listed above. Enjoy the sunset at the tables from the bar on the terrace ... ... sublime.

  • Carlos was an amazing person and his museum and history are astonishing. The surroundings are beautiful too. The prices in the museum are very high.
  • Amazing experience, and don't forget to go to Punta Ballena, a great view from the sea. I do not recommend to buy things there due to the high prices
  • Must go place! It's a little messy but it's worth the visit.
  • Really beautiful place but i missed having informations of the place and sculptures in English instead of only in spanish
  • I had one of the most beautiful sunset experience of my life. Poetry reading, horneros singing and the celebration of the sun in a gorgeous white castle, constracted by the love and work of one amazing human being Carlos Páez Vilaró...you can hardly beat that:)
