Create an itinerary including Monte Calvario
Make a solemn pilgrimage to Monte Calvario, a large cross depicting the crucifixion of Christ. A significant place of worship for many Argentines, the striking hilltop monument attracts particularly large crowds at Easter, with thousands of people making the journey to visit the cross and pay their respects. You'll have a quieter experience if you visit in low season, with more time and space to appreciate the beauty of the cross and its surrounds. As you stand in the monument's shadow, look out over Tandil and appreciate the serenity of the area. Plan my Tandil trip by asking Inspirock to come up with tips and suggestions.

  • Nice, even if your a not a christian
  • Beautiful place specially to celebrate Easter. Since 1943 the Stages of the Cross are represented along the way from the bottom till the top, where a big cross awaits. The image is breathtaking needless to say one gets very emotional. Thousands of people matching towards the cross, praying, leaving messages and prayers. The view of the city from the top is worthy. The cross is 22m tall allowing it to be spotted from almost every point of the city.
