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.

  • I recommend to do some exercise. Also used sneakers. If you are out from outside, you can climb safely since you can go by stopping at the stone school that is uphill and which leads to the piedra movediza. The prize is a very beautiful panoramic view of the mountains on one side and the other in the city of Tandil. Binding activity.

  • It is a place with difficult climb and to see a stone that is not real, but a poor replica. It is a bound Tandil but do not go with high expectations

  • even though it is a replica of the original, the ride is good, has a privileged view of tandil, ride this well cared and conserved, coming soon to your base opens a military museum with the military history of tandil. Take into account that the rise is a very strong physical demand, so it is recommended to go with comfortable clothes.

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.
