The Virgen de los Pescadores (also known as Stella Maris) is located on the slopes of Cerro del Ingles (San Antonio Hill). Established by Piria it is one of the oldest rides in Piriapolis since 1902. 

The image is the second one placed there by Piria. The terracotta original was designed by the Milanese sculptor Tomaso Airaghi but was destroyed by shots. There is no accurate information on the inauguration of the current image, made of French foundry (casting Val D´ Osne).
