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.

Off on a road from the sea. A quiet entrance but then a wealth of art. Mostly outdoors and just a pleasant walk through the installations. Pablo A has works in progress and it's like visiting his studio. Leave enough time to hang around. The...More

The landscape (luscious green grass, breeze tossed trees and dark blue pond) interspersed with some interesting sculptures made this a delightful afternoon. There were also 2 indoor galleries with sculpture or wall artwork, but none as satisfying as the natural setting.

Distance is about 20 kilometers. During the season the road is pretty busy so it may take at least 30 minutes to get there.
