This is a great place to visit when you have had enough laying on the beach and baking in the sun. Interesting sculptures and not only from the Atchugarry Studio but other Uruguayan artists as well.

Never crowded and on a nice day just lovely. Close to Manantiales which has some nice restaurants and other galleries to visit and is good option to get out of Punta del Este for the day.

The Fundacion is well-worth a visit, to get to know Uruguayan sculptor Pablo Atchuggary's pieces but also to stroll around the beautiful outdoor sculpture park -- it's a short ride from Manantiales up Route 104. The museum typically hosts two or three very chic events (think Sotheby's Real Estate, etc) every summer.

I read great reviews about the Foundation but I was not prepare for the magnificence of this place. The garden, the lake, the sculptures are simply amazing. We went with friends, no one was there. We parked inside and walked the garden with our dog on a leash. We stayed for 1hour.

A must see in Punta if you are at all interested in Art! Worth taking the trip out but choose a nice day. Special at sunset.

We visited the Fundacion on a very hot day but the park is so beautiful and the exhibition so fascinating that it didn't matter! If you like modern sculpture in a wonderful setting, it is worth visiting.
