Casapueblo is the house of noted Uruguayanmarker artist Carlos Páez Vilaró located in Punta Ballena (Whale Point) near Punta del Estemarker, Uruguaymarker. It is an homage to the artist's son Carlitos Miguel, one of the sixteen survivors of the crash of Uruguayan Air Force Flight 571marker. Casapueblo is now a citadel-sculpture that includes a museum, an art gallery, and the Hotel Casapueblo.

Built around a tin box called La Pionera (The Pioneer), Páez Vilaró designed it with a style that can be equated to the Mediterranean coast houses from Santorinimarker; however, the architect usually referred to hornero, a typical bird of Uruguaymarker, when discussing the construction style.

A few years ago Páez Vilaró added a hotel called Hotel Casapueblo or Club Hotel Casapueblo to the house following the style of the original construction. It includes restaurant named "Las Terrazas" (The Terraces)
