Cerro del Toro, Piriapolis

(3.9/5 based on 300+ 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.

  • Another must-see if you go to Piriápolis. I went in auto until the base of the Hill and of there climbed with my family by them steep stairways to the sculpture of the Bull. There us took a photo with the Bull of size natural and very imposing indeed e try to climb a little more, but the route was very careless, dirty and dangerous (in some sections not had Rails and had much stone loose). No doubt in its time of splendor, it must have been a wonderful ride. Now only serves to take is a couple of photos and nothing more.

  • Today I found it a bit neglected, apparently by falling trees. You can climb up to 19:00 hrs. Great place to go with family.
