Cerro del Toro, Piriapolis

3.8
#4 of 13 in Things to do in Piriapolis
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. Make Cerro del Toro a centerpiece of your Piriapolis vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Piriapolis trip planner.

  • While it costs a little upload it, the view of the city once you arrive is wonderful. You have to go with shoes and comfortable clothing. Bring water to hydrate and it is advisable to do so in the early hours. Before uploading the source of the Bull is with spring water.

  • Nice to walk the 33 steps and drink the fresh water emerging from the mouth of the bull, a bronze sculpture made in France.  more »
  • You can reach the Hill by car or walking, and you found with the stair that leads you to the bull, obviously photo forced upon him. Back there is a steep staircase, rather neglected, at times there are railings and other not, dangerous resulting. And when you get up, you have to start where you can, since there is no road signs to reach the top of the Hill climb... We did not get everything up, but during the ascent you can see another view of Piriapolis...

  • If you go up... You feel like the end of the earth before the space 😍
  • The best place in Google maps is not correct. I finished check the GPS to locate myself. Rest when I went, nor was there water in the Bull.

  • It has a spectacular view, tranquillity and peace that they feel is unique. But I value it low score because it has no other maintenance is quite neglected.
