  • Several trails with vantage points to the coast and the lagoon. It is free of charge. It can be on a bike. The longest road to the Aconcagua viewpoint to the lagoon is 3 km and takes 1:30 hour aprox. The sunset can be seen from there. It has a Museum in the House with items from Lussich, trunks and tile museum. If you go by car, you can be parked outside.

  • This place is a lovely walk through trees brought from around the world 100 years ago. Access is free and there is also a small museum in the main house. The longest paths are more than 2 km out! Smal...  more »
  • Very beautiful place and a bit hidden. Has a nice story about your "construction". Has several tracks with km and to accompany and guide the story. As we had little time, you could do just one!

  • Late Mr Antonio Lussich's estate, a landlord of the area, is now a Great park, ideal for hiking and seeing all sorts of trees and plants. There are a few stations with beautiful sights of lake Laguna del Sauce and Punta. You can ride bikes or take your pets, and even have a picnic in the forest.
  • Weekday walk. A nice break from the beach, and it felt like we had the place to ourselves most of the time (apart from an annoyingly loud four wheeler somewhere nearby). Some uphill but nothing challenging.
  • A nice walk besides the craziness of punta del este
  • Wonderful place for a walk or hike - highly recommend. - Wish there were many more such places in the area, but, unfortunately, it seems to be the only gem.
  • The best place for a picnic with the amazing view on Pan de Azúcar mountain.
