Casapueblo (Museo Taller de Casapueblo)
Perched atop the sea cliffs like a futuristic fairy-tale castle, the snow-white Casapueblo is a work of art and one of Uruguay’s top architectural landmarks. Visit the masterpiece—and former residence—of Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró to see its museum, art gallery, and hotel.

The Basics
Casapueblo is a popular day trip destination from Punta del Este, and many city tours include a visit. Head inside to explore the museum and art gallery, where you can peek into Vilaró’s workshop, learn more about the artist’s work and the building of the Casapueblo, and admire his colorful paintings, sculptures, and murals. The view from the terrace, looking out across the ocean, is a highlight. 

For a longer stay, check into the 4-star hotel, where the 20 rooms are each individually designed. Facilities include a swimming pool, sauna, and a terrace restaurant.
 
Things to Know Before You Go
  • The museum has a gift shop and a terrace cafe with ocean views. The hotel's terrace bar and restaurant is open to non-guests—reservations are highly recommended.  
  • The museum is not easily accessible for wheelchairs and strollers.
  • Admission tickets offer access to the museum and terrace; children under 12 are free.

How to Get to There
Casapueblo is located in Punta Ballena, about nine miles (14.5 kilometers) west of Punta del Este, which is about a 15-minute drive or taxi ride. To reach Casapueblo by public transport, take the bus to Lomo de la Ballena and then walk one mile (1.6 kilometer) along the coastal road.

When to Get There
The Casapueblo museum is open daily from midmorning until sunset. By far the most popular time to visit Casapueblo is at sunset, when crowds gather on the terrace for the Ceremony of the Sun. Minutes before sunset, listen to a recording of the artist's voice reading a Spanish poem to bid the sun farewell. The terrace can get crowded, especially in peak season, so arrive at least an hour before sunset to secure your spot.
 
Things to Do in Punta del Este
Punta del Este is beloved for its beaches and nightlife, but there's plenty to do. Beyond Casapueblo, other landmarks include Mario Irrazábal’s The Hand sculpture on Brava beach and the wave-like Lionel Viera Bridge (Puente de la Barra Bridge). Afterwards, visit Punta del Este Museum of the Sea (Museo del Mar) and Pablo Atchugarry Foundation (Fundación Pablo Atchugarry) art museum. Take in the views from the La Vista 360 tower and browse the shops along Gorlero Avenue and Artigas Square.
