What to see
La Movediza Lithic Park 

Located 3 km away from the centre of Tandil, it is one of the greatest attractions and symbols of the city: a large 300-ton stone that was kept in balance for hundreds of years. However, in 1912 the "moving stone" fell at the foot of the hill and broke into several pieces. In 2007, a replica was erected and today it is accessible through a path that offers the great view that surrounds the hill.

Cerro El Centinela

It is 4 km away from the centre. On this hill there is a giant stone with a geological history similar to that of La Movediza, which can be reached through a path surrounded by aromos and eucalyptus. From the top you can take a chairlift ride and enjoy the beautiful view of the city and its surroundings.

Adventure tourism

Tandil offers different adventure experiences to live on land, water and air. With authorized providers, there are many activities: trails for walking and pedaling, horseback riding, kayaking, climbing, rappelling, zip-lining, arborism, among others.

Monte Calvario

This religious theme park is about 15 blocks from the center and is one of the emblematic places of Tandil. You can walk along a zigzagging path between pines and eucalyptus trees until you reach the top crowned by a sculpture of Christ on the cross. At the base of the hill there are local gastronomy and sale of handicrafts.
