Great place to take pictures. You can see for miles. There are two shops where you can buy souvenirs or get something to drink. The Chapel on San Antonio is located there.

The only one of the hills of Piriapolis where you can actually drive your car to the top, otherwise you can choose to walk up your way on the stairs or a ride on the cable chairs. Parking at the top is free, there's a restaurant, a couple of places to get snacks and drinks, a chapel and some very ugly TV, radio and telephone network anthennas. The lovely views extend over Piriapolis to one side and Punta Fría, San Francisco and Punta Colorada on the other.

Unfortunately the cable car/chair lift is no longer operating and appears not to have been operating for some time. So must drive or walk up to the top. Once there there are great views toward Punta del Este and the Piriapolis area. There are a few souvenir vendors and a restaurant — not much else other than the views.

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.

Take the chair lift from the marina to the top of the hill for a fun way to see the views! The drive is good too as you wind around the hill to see views inland as well as the ocean. From the top you can see from Montevideo to Punta Del Este.

...all the way from Punta del Este. The ride to the top on the rickety ski lift was pretty fun, and the view is grand. We liked it so much we came back for dinner. Might as well have that chivito plate with a side of amazing views watching the sun go down.
