Castillo de Piria

Historic Site



Designed by architect Monzani in 1897, Piria's Castle was the private residence of the city founder.

The construction, in red brick, is reminiscent of the Italian villas of the time.

Access to the castle is via a road lined with palm trees that crosses a great park.

The building consists of two levels and a basement (closed to the public).

On the second level the balconies offer a spectacular view of the city.

There is period furniture, objects, weapons and works of art.

You will find the telephone switchboard that was used in those times, portraits of Piria and some pictures of Piriapolis as it was at the beginning of the century.
