Museo - Taller de Casapueblo, Punta del Este

(4.4/5 based on 8,000+ reviews on the web)
Learn about the life and work of painter, sculptor, writer, and composer Carlos Páez Vilaró at Museo - Taller de Casapueblo. Housed within a former summer house and studio designed by the artist himself, the museum and art gallery display the range of Páez Vilaró's exuberant work. He found deep and abiding inspiration in the African candombe music in the tenement where it flourished, and also traveled the world, exhibiting his paintings and other visual media. The museum's architecture alone makes the trip worthwhile: the white, warped-looking structure was built using traditional methods, using wood, concrete, and stucco. You'll notice that the maze-like complex contains no straight lines inside. As well as the museum and gallery, the building also contains a four-star hotel and a cafe.

  • The Casapueblo is something surreal. Not just the architecture, as the show to see the sunset from there, in silence, with people from all over the world ... pure emotion, and as the sun sets, it is possible to hear a poem of his own Vilaró (written and narrated by him), creepy. We were so excited this time and the sunset, a charm. Is basic visit in Punta.
