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!

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.

My wife (35) and me (33) went there by car since the way up is a clean road which is not very vice to climb by foot. I recommend there since you get a great view of Piriapolis, Pan de Azukar and nearby cities
