Cerro del Toro, Piriapolis
(3.9/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Hike up Cerro del Toro, a minor hill that offers a wealth of hiking routes through a biologically rich area. At 253 m (830 ft) tall, the hill offers a good walking option close to town--do wear decent hiking boots, as the path gets pretty rocky and steep in places. Half way up the hill, you'll find a life-size statue of a bull, made in bronze and with a natural water source emerging from its mouth. Enjoy the vista from the bull's semi-circle vantage point, or head up to the hill's summit.

  • Very nice striking. Take it easy. Pretty clean. Free of charge. Hours are 9 to 20. There are enough stairs up to the Bull. There are no bathrooms.

  • The ascent to this Hill is made up of two stages: the first, which can be done in the car, goes to the stairway that leads to the huge statue of a bull (cast in France at the beginning of the 20TH century) that gives the place its name. The second must be done on foot and to get to the top, it requires some level of effort.
