Punta del Este’s Ralli Museum (there are five Ralli Museums around the world; this was the first) is full of Latin American and European works amassed by the museum’s late benefactor, Greek banker Harry Recanati. He founded the Ralli so visitors—who pay no admission fee—could become acquainted with and enjoy Latin American art. Among the pieces in the Punta del Este collection, exhibited both indoors and in courtyards and gardens, are sculptures by renowned Colombian artist Fernando Botero and Uruguayan painter Manuel Pailós, as well as a number of sculptures by Catalan surrealist Salvador Dalí.
