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.

  • It is a nice walk, with auto access to the source which is part of a trilogy created by Piria, it's a bull in size in French cast iron, made by Isidore Bonheur brought from Paris and located 50 m from the sea level, where a natural spring was connected to that outbreak of the mouth of the same.
