It is wonderful to see that this magical place, unique un Uruguay, has been recovered. The museum and a walk through the castle grounds, take us back to an era thet we should not forget. After visiting the museum and going through the mysterious gardens, we enjoyed a nice coffee in the shop, full of creativity and magic. When visiting Uruguay, don't miss this experience.

There isn't a lot known about the building or about Humberto Pittamiglio. The building's architecture and decorations are filled with meaning, however the building was oppressive. The outside of the building that you can see from the street is very cool.

We say that Pitamiglio was an Alchemist of 4th degree. The conception and the constructionof the castle wre made under his inspiration. Some legends let know that during the 2nd world war the Saint Graal was recovered in Montecasino in Italy and translated to the Pittamiglio castel. It could have been recovered by the Vatican after the second visit of JP II Pope

Fascinating architectural gem created by a true eccentric. Unfortunately, the tour was offered only in Spanish and though we had a Spanish speaker in our group translating on the fly, I'm sure we missed a lot of the explanation. Still, it was worth the experience.

Pittamiglio was an engineer, architect and alchemist. 54 rooms, 33 doors and many stairs. It is a labyrinth of 14,000sq ft spread over many levels. Tours are available in English and it is not wheelchair friendly.
