Uruguay: Casapueblo is a Fascinating Place to Visit with Kids

Uruguay with kids - Visit Casapueblo with Kids

There are so many reasons to visit Uruguay with kids -- cultural experiences and art centers being one of them. Casapueblo was one of the many places we visited during our family trip to Uruguay last year. Originally the home and art studio of famous Uruguayan artist Carlos Páez Vilaró, Casapueblo is a fascinating place to visit with kids. A beautiful structure with breathtaking views, and every afternoon a Sun Ceremony is held on the museum's terrace. Just minutes before sunset, the artist's voice recording plays over a loud speaker dedicating a poem to the sun to bid it farewell.

Adiós Sol…! Mañana te espero otra vez. Casapueblo es tu casa, por eso todos la llaman la casa del sol. El sol de mi vida de artista. El sol de mi soledad. Es que me siento millonario en soles, que guardo en la alcancía del horizonte. ~ Carlos Páez Vilaró
