Summer Beach Walks: ‘Piriápolis’ In Uruguay

Filmed in February 2021

Piriápolis is a city on southern Uruguay’s Atlantic coast. One of the country’s earliest resorts, it’s known for its belle époque–style buildings, like the waterfront Argentino Hotel. Near yacht-filled Piriápolis harbor, a chairlift leads up Cerro San Antonio, a hill with a small whitewashed chapel and a lookout point. The waterfront promenade of Rambla de los Argentinos curves around the bay and Piriápolis Beach. 

Maldonado is the capital of Maldonado Department of Uruguay. As of the census of 2011, it is the seventh most populated city of the country. Maldonado is also the name of the municipality to which the city belongs.
