Owner description: Once the home of celebrated Uruguayan artist Carlos Paez Vilaro, this eye-catching seaside Mediterranean-style structure is today a modern art museum.
Reviewed 26 July 2010

We are in & out in about an hour. Make sure you watch the video upstairs as it gave a lot of insight into Carlos Paez Vilaró's life and his desire to help the less fortunate. He even worked with Dr. Schweitzer. I ramble...but it was an interesting "living sculpture" and is reminiscent of Greek architecture. It was interesting to see and the view is spectacular. We didn't go when the whales are around, but on a cold winter week, we were able to go to Punta del Este on the one fine, sunny day in July! Awesome.

Stare at the sunset, and just relax listening to the poetry at the Casa Pueblo. We enjoyed it very much! Beautiful view in a great scenario.

We were advised by the local Hertz agent in Punta del Este to check out Casapueblo at sunset. Great advice, as this was one of the most beautiful sunsets I've ever seen. The patio area out back has a broad view of the horizon and surrounding coast, which is complemented with bar service and a voiceover poem written by the artist (in Spanish) paying homage to the setting sun. This experience largely made our visit to Punta worth it by itself.

Thank Ben R
