Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • A fantastic and well preserved place for believers. It has some level of difficulty, so it is not recommended when it is very hot for people with a disability.
