Monte Calvario, Tandil

4.2
Make a solemn pilgrimage to Monte Calvario, a large cross depicting the crucifixion of Christ. A significant place of worship for many Argentines, the striking hilltop monument attracts particularly large crowds at Easter, with thousands of people making the journey to visit the cross and pay their respects. You'll have a quieter experience if you visit in low season, with more time and space to appreciate the beauty of the cross and its surrounds. As you stand in the monument's shadow, look out over Tandil and appreciate the serenity of the area. Planning Tandil trip won't be overwheling when you use's Insprock itinerary maker.

  • Visiting the tourist attractions offered by Tandil we arrived at "Mount Calvary". Is located 2.5 km from the downtown area. It can be a very good walk if you like outdoor activities. On the other hand if you have mobility problems to note that distance. I recommend go with sneakers and comfortable clothes to enjoy the ride. The place is very quiet, a park which has a church / Chapel, as well as a santeria where souvenirs. The main thing is to be recreated the journey of the cross with a road to follow along which statues are representing the stations. At the end of it there is a stairway that leads to the crucified Christ (important: steps can be difficult if you have mobility problems) the place with Christ on the cross is very well done, and you can see the city from above. People come there to leave their thanks to his promises, pray or just relax and enjoy the peace of the environment. To improve: need a little care / cleaning in place. Although it is a matter of education (cultural) visitors have, should collected the garbage that people leave so more frequent.

Where to stay in Tandil

Thanks to Tandil's popularity as a weekend and holiday destination for domestic and international tourists alike, it features a wide array of accommodation options suitable for just about any budget. Downtown you'll find a number of larger-scale hotels and rental apartments that offer privacy, onsite dining, and fancier accoutrements catering to business travelers and tourists. In order to get out into nature, many visitors opt for "cabanas," traditional Argentine cabins in the surrounding countryside; bear in mind that these are rustic and charming but only practical if you have access to a car. Booking ahead of time in the summer high season is an absolute must in Tandil, as lodgings fill up fast.
