Castillo Pittamiglio, Montevideo

(600+ reviews on the web)
Castle
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.

  • Next to the Pocitos beach lies the Castillo Pittamiglio (Pittamiglio Castle). From the city centre you can take a taxi to there (Uber costs around 200 pesos or US$ 7) The tour lasts around 40 minutes....  more »
  • a beautiful place, with much history and that is worth a visit. with an excellent gastronomic offer and sometimes plays that are worth.

  • It seems that you escaped in the time tunnel because it is as tight between the buildings. A beautiful place, too bad that it is no longer the restaurant

  • 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.
  • Muy lindo
  • Interesting place with a short tour.
  • Fascinated me, mystical place

  • I went to see a play there, small room but very comfortable, the unmissable castle tour.
