This unusual building in the Punta Carretas neighborhood of Montevideo was the residence of the architect Humberto Pittamiglio. Its most striking feature is the entrance facing Rambla Mahatma Gandhi, from which a replica of the iconic Greek sculpture the Winged Victory of Samothrace emerges from a round brick tower, crowned by a coat of arms.
Pittamiglio was an Uruguayan architect and engineer. He built this house in 1910-1911. The history of the castle is surrounded by stories—some claim that it once housed the Holy Grail. Inside, the building is filled with alchemical, Templar, Rosicrucian, and Masonic symbols.
