Categories: Art Museums, Architectural Buildings, Museums, Tourist Spots
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. Using our world travel planner, Punta del Este attractions like Museo - Taller de Casapueblo can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

The ticket cost $ 240.00 or UR R$ 30.00 to be paid only in cash. But the cafeteria inside left very much to be desired. In addition, the 16:00 had no more water!show original
