    ��acurut��

    The Estación de Cría de Fauna Autóctona is situated at one hillside of Cerro Pan de Azúcar; several species of native animals can be seen here, in a natural environment. Ñandúes (american ostriches), chajás, vultures, penguins, carpinchos, stags... and many more.
    The picture shows a ñacurutú (Bubo virginianus), a kind of owl (50 cm high, that lives on the top of the trees during the day light, and chases during the night).

    From Cerro Pan de Az��car

    To climb Cerro Pan de Azúcar is a good exercise (a little hard if you are not in your better days) but the landscape from the top is awesome.

    Subir el Cerro Pan de Azúcar es un buen ejercicio ( un poco arduo si no estás en tus mejores días) pero el paisaje desde la cima es espectacular.

    From Cerro del Toro

    From the top of Cerro del Toro the sight is wonderful; you find the city and the beach at your feet. But sometimes you cannot enjoy the landscape: once I climbed this hill with a group of my students of 1st degree (12 years old), and I was so worried about losing a kid, that I did not enjoy the view at all!

    Desde la cima del Cerro del Toro la vista es maravillosa; encuentras la ciudad y la playa a tus pies. Pero a veces no puedes disfrutar el paisaje: una vez yo subí este cerro con un grupo de alumnos de 1er año (12 años de edad), y estaba tan preocupada por que no se me perdiera ninguno, que no disfruté la vista en lo más mínimo!!!

    Beach and San Antonio Hill

    Close to the beach, in front of the port, is situated Cerro del Inglés (Englishman's Hill), which has a height of 130 m. At the top it has a small chapel with a statue of San Antonio (Saint Anthony), made of terracotta and brought from Milan, so everybody calls this hill San Antonio. From the top the view is awesome; it is esy to climb and there are cable chairs from the port to the top.
    Girls pray San Antonio for a boyfriend...

    Cerca de la playa, frente al puerto, se encuentra el Cerro del Inglés, que tiene una altura de 130 m. En la cima hay una capillita con una imagen de San Antonio hecha en terracota y traída desde Milán, por lo que todo el mundo le dice San Antonio a este cerro. Desde la cima la vista es magnífica; es fácil subir y hay aerosillas desde el puerto hasta la cima.
    La chicas le rezan a San Antonio para que les consiga un novio...
