Loved the structure and the art is intriguing. You can spend half a day there with family with some good restaurants a short drive away.

The construction is unique, very beautiful pieces of art inside. The price is not expensive and the view is extraordinary. Definitely the finest attraction in Punta.

Casa Pueblo is one of the many places to visit nearby Punta del Este. "Casa" became a legend in the '60s and '70s and somehow is still able to offer in the 21st Century a great, artistic and almost magic visit. Be there to enjoy...More

For 240 pesos per person it is well worth the visit. Start you tour with the visual presentation to set the tone and appreciate the artwork. Every where you turn you see something new. Loved it. See if you can find the Salvador Dali tiles...More
