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.

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

This beach as far as I am concerned is the perfect combo; enough waves for the adventurous, but never too scary for the family-type visitors; perfect for walking and finding treasures, food and snacks nearby, chair and umbrella rentals, and lots of happy people.

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.
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.

The Ralli Museums is focused on drawing attention to the works of living Latin-American Artists. Additionally, it exhibits works by European 15th through 18th. Century artists, post-impressionism collections as well as paintings and sculptures representing other artistic trends. As a non-profit, private institution we do not accept donations or subsidies fromo either public or private sources. Nor do we engage in any kind of commercial activity; consequently, no dining facilities or museums shops are available in our premises. We hope you will enjoy this proposal as muchs as we have enjoyed preparing it for you.
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.

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 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.
