Next to the Pocitos beach lies the Castillo Pittamiglio (Pittamiglio Castle). From the city centre you can take a taxi to there (Uber costs around 200 pesos or US$ 7) The tour lasts around 40 minutes. The guide explains about the life of Humberto Pittamiglio (the owner) and all the symbols in there. Humberto Pittamiglio was an alchemist so he... 更多
Walking on the Ramblas we saw this strange looking building and decided to go in. The castle was actually quite large and there are daily tours starting at 10 am. The guide spoke some English put we did the tour in Spanish. Every room and there are lots is different in size, style, decoration. AND they are filled with alchemy... 更多
Mostly every day, it is able to visit inside the building, with a special guide, which will explain, the constructure of each room, since all of them are different. All is very interesting. There is also a nice Restaurant with the posibility to have a good dinner.
We went there hoping to see a historic place and learn a little bit from it but unfortunately the guide was not there and they allowed us to visit unguided. The architecture was really interesting but the conservation state of the building is terrible and clearly decadent. Hopefully we will see it again in better times in the future.
Tour at 5:00pm certain days of the week (I went on Tuesday), lasted about 40 minutes. Well worth cost of admission (130 Uruguayan pesos). It was hard to find information ahead of time about tour availability - we went early and there was a note on the door with the schedule. All tours in Spanish, but interesting to just look... 更多
We are particularly fond of the unusual and off of the beaten track, so this place was a delight for us. It would have been better if we were Spanish speakers, since the tour isn't offered in English, but our guide was very nice to give us abbreviated English translations and the other folks on the tour didn't seem put... 更多
I lived many years in 21 de Setiembre and we were very curious about this castle. They open it to the public a couple of years ago. Interesting to visit and know the story of the owner.Specially interesting is the front side of the house facing the river. It is to commemorate the Battle of Samotracia.
Wow I'm so glad i walked all the way here from the Sheraton. Well worth it. The building is so odd and so out of place, yet so cool and so much detail. I did not go inside although it looks as if it is a play house or theater. So nice.
Getting the tour is a little tricky, but the Freemasons just knew how to build something meaningful. It's beautiful from outside and inside is kind of Da Vinci Code.
stumbled across this bizarre building while walking along the Rambla. i wish i'd known about it before hand as it sounds great. i just assumed it was a folly. as an aside, opposite here there are a few trees that seem to be a magnet for parrots.
