“Panoramic View of Coast and countryside”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 April 2013

Average because the chair lift taking you up the Cerro is average - nothing wow about it, and the top is also average, you have a view and a small store for some overpriced souvenirs and some snacks.... Not much to do or see other than the view and come down. Nice view though!

“Nice scenery of the beach and city!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 January 2013

We had lunch at the restaurant in the top. If you can try the "Chipirones". It's a very delicious dish in Uruguay and in that restaurant, were the best of Piriapolis!

Although it isn't very high, the view over Piriápolis is excellent.

“One of the five beautiful views of the unique Piriapolis area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2012

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.
