  • Get to know it in 1 hour 30 minutes
Located between Playa Hermosa and Playa Verde with a height 170 meters, the De los Burros hill is located . It was also known as the De la Virgen hill because of an image placed at the top, but it takes its current name because it was the place chosen by Pirie to send these animals to graze.

In recent studies by the Municipality of Maldonado, evidence has been found of human habitation 10,000 years BC. Ugo Meneghín, a researcher associated with the Natural History Museum of Montevideo, worked here since 1970 and for 20 years, analyzing more than 15,000 artifacts extracted. Among the most important discoverments, several projectile points built upon a rock of purplish brown color called rhyolite were found.
