  • beautiful building in a large park, where you can see Uruguayan paintings and some collection not permanent but always interesting.

  • It is worth getting away from the center of Montevideo to get to know this museum. Behold the works of Blanes and tour this beautiful house. Behind it is the Japanese garden, but because of the rains of those days it was closed, we could only see it on the outside.
