Is can begin in form paused, visiting the reserve's fauna, that is formidable. And then, going up the Hill, already marked areas. The correct and safe way is marked to do so.

When we started to go down, quickly fell in the evening, and in the almost penumbra, was very difficult to find the road signposted (with paintings in stone), we lost, we took a wrong road, and honestly, there are detours that can lead you to a kind of precipice, so obviously, the recommendation is to climb calculating enough time to come back down with sufficient natural light. The view from the top, is priceless: overlooking the sea, the mountains, the forests, to the city, in sum, view from atop that is a heavenly landscape. And the icing on the cake, climb to the vantage point that is within the cross located at the top of the Hill. An experience that who visit Piriapolis or surrounding areas should miss.show original
