  • It is just a 10-minute drive from the Centre and is a great place to enjoy the country atmosphere and to taste the sweets of homemade and excellent cuisine. It has a museum with the largest worldwide collections of pencils, pins, keychains, ashtrays, etc. Very picturesque.

  • Interesting place, peculiar. A enoooooorme collection of pencil. A writer would do the party ... the pencil rsrsr. There are pencils from unimaginable places. Very good. Another collection of Keychain. Draws attention although I haven't liked. But the best of the place (depending on viewpoint), are the sweets and cheeses. Candy cranks (type: onion-that's right with the barbecue), and others. And common candies such as dulce de leche (which has nothing in common. Is a sweet show. The place is also pleasant, with lots of trees. The organization is also very good, service excellent. Has a Lord who saved the name that is not his own. Worth knowing.

  • I didn't see any fun in the Collections. Only worth it for fans. In addition, prices there are not the best. The dulce de leche-shop is very good, but you can buy cheaper in the markets of Montevideo (other brands). I didn't like the alfajores sold there (puertozelo tag or something).
