Visit: Museo – Taller de Casapueblo, Ruta Panoramica Mar de Liguria, Punta Ballena, Maldonado 20003 Uruguay
Casapueblo is a building constructed by the Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró. It is located in Punta Ballena, 8.1 miles (13 kilometers) from Punta del Este, Uruguay. It was originally a summer house and workshop of the artist. It now houses a museum, an art gallery, a cafeteria and a hotel. It was the permanent residence of its creator, where he worked and spent his last days.
In the main dome of Casapueblo are the museum and workshop where you can see part of the work of the late painter, potter, sculptor, muralist, writer, composer and builder Carlos Páez Vilaró. It has four exhibition halls: Nicolás Guillén Room, Pablo Picasso Room, Rafael Squirm Room, José Gómez Sicre Room, projection room, the Mermaid Terrace, Hippocampus Viewpoint, Taberna del Rayo Verde, coffee shop and boutique.
Every afternoon since 1994, the Ceremony of the Sun is performed on the terraces of the museum. Minutes before sunset, the artist's voice from a recording dedicates a poem to the sun to bid the sun farewell.
