    Open a few days but the visit is driven by college students that give technical explanations and fundamental character.

    The House of the architect Vilamajó is worth a visit, especially if it is guided by an architecture student (Karen), which transmits her enthusiasm and competition by calling our attention to distribution of spaces (exterior/interior, main service area), axis of the building, floor, original furniture, possible links with Freemasonry and Alchemy, as well as details of construction that may have gone unnoticed and thanks to the guide we have been able to appreciate and enjoy. It is, of course, a beautiful and interesting example of housing designed and inhabited by its own author, of a modernity that impresses. According to the booklet which gave us there yesterday, the opening hours is as follows: Wednesday and Saturday from 10.00 to 16.00 h., with guided tours for groups from 3 o'clock people point (10, 11, 12, 13, 14 and 15 h.).

    Inflatable visit for fans of architecture and for the not so much. A very interesting life told through a walk by his house and his work. Excellent guides, very good work from the Faculty of architecture. It was flawless

    The same House, modern singular work, declared a national historic landmark in 1990, is the protagonist and the ideal setting to host a permanent exhibition on the work of Vilamajó, and to periodically receive temporary exhibitions related not only to the architecture and design, but also to other related areas. There are currently guided tours, book presentations, events associated with the neighborhood cultural circuits that include, in addition to the Faculty of architecture, design and urban planning (FADU), the Faculty of engineering, the National Museum of Visual Arts, the exhibition space open-pit of Parque Rodó, and events in collaboration with other museums and cultural institutions in our country and abroad.

Where to stay in Montevideo

Montevideo's central neighborhoods offer plenty of hostels for budget-minded travelers, as well as a good selection of mid-range hotels for visitors looking for a bit more space and privacy. Luxury rooms are harder to come by, especially if you arrive without a reservation. If you want to indulge your every desire, your best bet is the waterfront area, where you can find four- and five-star hotels offering all the modern amenities you need, including complimentary bicycles and car rental services.
