Puente Leonel Viera

Reviewed By Rauko-uy - Punta del Este, Uruguay

A marvellous "domed" bridge made years ago by an engineering genius. Decades later the flow of traffic rendered it to narrow, so the Uruguayan government in a brilliant decision made another twin bridge next to it... exactly the same as the original with its two distinctive humps.

Playa de Jose Ignacio

Reviewed By BushFreak - Johannesburg

This is not a big party town. It is small and quiet and quaint. Nice restaurants and amazing Beaches that stretch for kilometers in both directions. We are returning for a longer relaxing stay.

Museo – Taller de Casapueblo

Once the home of celebrated Uruguayan artist Carlos Paez Vilaro, this eye-catching seaside Mediterranean-style structure is today a modern art museum.

Reviewed By feyms - NJ

We arrived by Tender from a Celebrity Cruise. Our tour guide took us to the Museo—Taller De Casapueblo. It was an oddly shaped Museum/Hotel and restaurant painted all white with irregular rounded shapes unlike most building structures. The parking lot was crowded with tourist busses and cars.
It cost $10 US to enter the museum which portrayed a few rooms of Modern Art pictures and sculptures. Sorry, but I just don’t get the appeal. There were books for sale, a nice balcony overlooking the water, and refreshments for sale. But, as far as I’m concerned, it was not a good value. My wife reassured me it was “iconic” for Punta De Estes, but I feel as if the beautiful town, upscale environment and Beaches were far more interesting.

Fundacion Pablo Atchugarry

Beautiful park with sculptures by the uruguayan artist Pablo atchugarry and other international artists. It also has a building with rotative Exhibitions and two stages where free events are held.

Reviewed By ldt43 - Toronto

The Fundación Pablo Atchugarry houses not only the studio of this celebrated Uruguayan sculptor, but also includes a superb installation of contemporary sculpture on the beautiful grounds, a gallery of his own work, and a larger gallery with special Exhibitions of contemporary artists whom he knows. But the special treat was to meet, visit with, and watch the artist himself create his masterpieces in Italian travertine marble.

Reviewed By Mike M - Edinburgh, United Kingdom

This museum is only open at weekends. The building is beautiful, outside and in. There's a quite nice wee sculpture garden/courtyard. Thankfully this was free as it was our third disappointing visit to places of art in Punta del Este. Another 5-10 minute tour of a flat, uninspiring display.

Isla Gorriti

Reviewed By dianamacg - Buenos Aires, Argentina

Always on view when one faces westwards it is worth a visit. One tekes a boat trip from the port of Punta del Este and a few minutes later arrive on the island. It is worth taking a picnic and settling in the peace and quiet at one of the tables dotted around. There is only one beach and it is usually pretty crowded and the beach bar packed as well, hence the picnic idea. A lovely stroll amongst the pine trees and then back again. Not worth spending a whole day there but a pleasant way to spend 3 or 4 hours.

Rambla General Jose Artigas

Reviewed By Pepperjackm - Texas

Rambla goes all around the Peninsula I would start at the Hand by the bus station, and Brava beach around the point Great Britain Square, then past the Harbor, on to Mansa Beach, or the reverse. Good views, picture taking, sea lions in the marina.
