Cerro del Toro, Piriapolis

#5 of 18 in Things to do in Piriapolis
Landmark · Tourist Spot
Hike up Cerro del Toro, a minor hill that offers a wealth of hiking routes through a biologically rich area. At 253 m (830 ft) tall, the hill offers a good walking option close to town--do wear decent hiking boots, as the path gets pretty rocky and steep in places. Half way up the hill, you'll find a life-size statue of a bull, made in bronze and with a natural water source emerging from its mouth. Enjoy the vista from the bull's semi-circle vantage point, or head up to the hill's summit. Make Cerro del Toro a centerpiece of your Piriapolis vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Piriapolis trip planner.

The ascent to the closed is a bit rough so I recommend long sports clothes and sports shoes It is also important to carry water or bottles to be able to carry the water of the bull that claims to be mineral of a natural slope.
