Castillo Pittamiglio, Montevideo
Categories: Castles, Tourist Spots
Admire an impressive Modernist landmark, cultural center, and museum at Castillo Pittamiglio, home of architect Humberto Pittamiglio from 1910 until his death in 1966. The building's design was an ongoing process intentionally left unfinished when Pittamiglio died. Consider the symbolism of the curious sculptures curling around the main building, and take a tour of the interior to see oddly shaped rooms, doors that lead to nothing, and interesting color and material choices. The life of the architect remains the source of much mystery, and the museum addresses several rumors that surround the man and his work.

It costs 130 pesos. Is very worthwhile, especially for those who don't have a lot of knowledge about Alchemy. The castle is not large, but it is very interesting for those who enjoy a more cultural programming.show original
O local tem um aspecto bem diferente, místico. O ruim é que tem um horário muito restrito e acabamos não podendo visitar a qualquer momento. Tem que se planejar.The site has a very different, mystical aspect. The bad is that it has a very restricted time and end up not being able to visit at any time. You have to plan.show original
Foi um dos passeios mais interessante que vivi em Montevedeo. E uma casa com condições muitos estranhas e vale a pena ir. Não posso falar mais nada pois estraga a surpresa..He was one of the most interesting that I have lived in Montevedeo. And a House with many strange conditions and worth going to. I can't say anything more because it spoils the surprise.show original
You can visit it with your kids and take the tour to know about the architect and the building. Takes around 30 mins. That´s all. Many hidden diagrams and references to Mason´s people.
Interesting place with a short tour.
