Piedra Movediza, Tandil

See one of Tandil's most iconic tourist attractions brought back to life at Piedra Movediza. On this site once stood a famous 300-ton rock, peculiarly balanced on the edge of the hill. A century ago, scores of visitors would come to Tandil to see it. Unfortunately, the rock--which used to swing slightly back and forth--finally fell and broke in 1912. Today, you can view a very realistic replica, poised on the exact spot where the original once stood. Bring your camera, as you'll also have an excellent vantage point over Tandil. Using our international travel planner, Tandil attractions like Piedra Movediza can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.

    There are 2 entry, by the traditional and the side a high stretch accessed by car, you can walk less. It is an option for those who can not resist rise by stairs.

    Tandil was the attraction of the stone and managed a replica more or less similar. Anyway worth the rise (268 steps), interesting view and the place has its own history

    Excellent location very good view. It is a short journey. Very steep section of the ascent and descent should be done with caution.

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.
