Cerro San Antonio, Piriapolis

4.6
#1 of 13 in Things to do in Piriapolis
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.

  • The Hill is on the way to Punta del Este, and the beach is beautiful. It also has the image of Santo Antonio and some shops to buy souvenirs. Recommend!

Where to stay in Piriapolis

No one can say for sure what Francisco Pira would have made of the modern development in Piriapolis--but he wanted a beach resort, and he's sure got one. Hotels old and new cling to the beach, offering a variety of facilities including private swimming pools, outdoor dining areas, casinos, and spas. For something a bit quieter, explore the resort-style accommodations in the less built-up areas of the beach. Alternatively, head a bit back from the coast for simpler, modest options.
