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.

    It is a place to walk and turn on all the senses, there is a road that leads to the Chapel, and another that begins the journey of Calvary, the trail is of low difficulty, so that you can go with the team of Matt and rest in one of the stone benches... It is a tour for the whole family. It has no cost.

    Very good choice to perform a different stations, with all surroundings of mountains and vegetation, it amounts to stopping at stations and is descended by steps in the stone. A walk that takes no more than 1 hour but is very exciting.

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.
