Castillo Pittamiglio, Montevideo
(4.2/5 based on 550+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Lovely place. Out of all the expected, different from your entire environment. The staff is very friendly. Although it was not time to tour made a brief visit since it was our last day in Montevideo. The place has dyes from fantasy and by moments of eerie. Very interesting visit

  • 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.
