Cerro San Antonio, Piriapolis

(1,000+ reviews on the web)
Landmark Tourist Spot
Cerro San Antonio provides scenic views of the harbor and the city center to the west, the surrounding mountains and forested hills to the north, and a rocky inlet to the east. The hill owes its name to the small round white chapel at its top. Ride a chairlift from the port or hike up the gentle slope to reach the 130 m (426 ft) summit. Halfway up, you will see the statue of Maris Stella Virgin, protector of anglers and sailors. Every January you can watch or join the runners of "Doble San Antonio" race, which follows the path up and down the hill. Use our Piriapolis holiday planner to arrange your visit to Cerro San Antonio and other attractions in Piriapolis.

  • A very short trip from central Piriapolis, and well worth it! Nice view of the surroundings! On a clear day you can see Punta del Este without problems - a nice skyline!  more »
  • It is the perfect place to take a picture of Piriapolis, beautiful views, but there is no toilet, so take care of your business before you go up there.  more »
