Casapueblo Tours

63 Reviews
Located 13 kilometers from Punta del Este, Casapueblo is the former summer home of Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró and today is a hotel, museum and more. The structure itself is a work of art — the result of 36 years of construction and careful design. Built into the cliffs, Casapueblo is reminiscent of the whitewashed buildings in Santorini, with a twist of modern art.

Even if you’re not planning on staying in the hotel, Casapueblo and the city of Punta Ballena is a popular day trip from Punta del Este. Visitors get a real insight to the artist’s life and 50 years of work. Casapueblo is the home to Vilaró’s studios and today the gallery and museum house his works, complete with photos and a short film about his life. Casapueblo also attracts visitors for the amazing ocean views, which are especially breathtaking at sunset. A highlight of a visit is the nightly Sun Celebration that takes place at sunset on the decks of the museum overlooking the ocean. Viewing the sunset can get very crowded, especially in the summer, so it’s best to arrive early. The restaurant at Casapueblo is the ideal place to have a special meal and take in the million-dollar view.
