  • A very high natural site with a surrounding park is very nice and care. He is observed the URUGUAY River and its islands with large dimension. There is place for camping and fishing Jetty. It is a historical place is there a monument to the national hero ARTIGAS at the Summit very nearby had their camp where drafted instructions for the thirteen year 1813 on the distribution of land and land for which works it that even not is it has crystallized. PURIFICATION is the area of the settlement that have not been expropriated to be visited. Also there spread the ashes of the founder and leader of the front large political group that championed these ideas for those who like nature park is quiet and spacious with many birds and native trees. VISIT North of URUGUAY missed place to go with time. Held two festivals one week of tourism Saturday 8 h output race with an impressive visual of that height of all the boats 50 or more. And in September, close to 23 visit GAUCHO celebration and tribute to the hero with more than 2 thousand horses with flags and costumes and sold traditional Roast with leather. Beef roast with the fur of the animal which is then removed and gives a different flavor that is very special and folk groups in each camp is selling crafts and evening dancing with Frank rural accent

  • Costs a little reach, from R3 to the North is opens a road deteriorated with many hillocks and curves. 15 minutes later you get to the "plateau of Artigas". Beautiful landscape in it high, where focused a monolith giant to the eminent Uruguayan. A few metres down I recommend you take a dip in the Spa Las Toscas, at the foot of a small copper plateau.

  • It is located in the Department of Paysandú Uruguay. It is a rugged promontory outgoing truncated pyramid of 45 meters. height, place where all movement in the Uruguay River and its two banks is observed. Here in this area the General José Gervasio Artigas settled purification camp headquarters of the Government of the federal League. As training geogratica is a place beautiful, and here a 25 in August of 1899 was innagura a bust to the General Artigas. When it saw for first time being a child I leave impressed by its size and its location. The bust measures 5.6 meters, 5.5 shoulder to shoulder and weighs 3.686 pounds, but at the same time is at a height of 80 meters. on the level of the river which has a pyramidal stone of 15 by 15 base is its base shrinking to its vertex from which rises a cylindrical column on which stands the bust. All surrounded by a well-kept Park and buildings for services that do not clash the place.
