Mr. Piria a staunch entrepreneur who bought and sold land and developed Piriapolis, (the city of Piria) was a Mason and also an alchemist. The castle is full of symbolism that deserves to be known.

The kids ran around outside, exploring the grassy area surrounding the building — a cacophony of birds in the trees and the soft evening light makes it a stunning memory. My husband and I enjoyed learning about the unique history of the area as well...More

Castle itself is not interesting as a building. Nothing of interest inside. Displays are poor. This castle is a bus ride of 20 minutes and there is only one bus an hour. The museum is free so if you are driving you might stop. Really...More

Not a lot to see inside the castle but certainly an interesting story and worth a wander if you have some free time and want something to do. Some period furniture pieces here and there, one roped-off room with a collection of heirlooms inside as...More

Interesting town. One of my favorite in Uruguay. Castle is interesting but the man that built it is an even better story. I suggest a stop then into town for lunch.

This is the placed we enjoyed the most from Piriapolis. We visited the castle with a guide who kindly responded all our enquiries. The place has a unique atmosphere and you may feel you are in the middle of some magic spell going on.

You can enjoy the castle, walk in the garden, view go up to the tower, and more. It's a great place to visit with kids.
