Mueso del Pan:

I suspect this is at best a reconstruction. There seems to be little current information about this museum, so it may no longer exist.

Mock Mills

Punta Del Este (#uymock1)

tower mill :

My only current reference to this is the caption on some flickr photos, which states it was built in the 1920 as the residence, of the poet André Giot de Badet. It's now called the "El Molino Viejo" having been later used as a mill, a milk farm and a factory that produced roof tiles and pipes.

Mirador Rosado: tower mill :

The Mirador Rosado was destroyed by storms in 1977, and it's location is now the Domingo Savio school or college. The Mirador itself was old, but had been built upon the even older tower of a windmill.
