"Cerro de la Gloria in Bike -Subida en bici" Provincia de Mendoza Things to Do Tip by kikekike

Provincia de Mendoza Things to Do: 42 reviews and 45 photos

Mendoza -'in the desert'-has a great park very close to the center. It is really big (bigger than Retiro in Madrid, for instance) and at its tip, there is a 300m high hill - El Cerro de la Gloria. So I thought it would be a nice idea to rent a bike and go to the park and up. The climb was supposed to be challenging, but it was not so much, since there are lots of bends and is one way -which makes it also safe (the park is not car-free). At the summit there is a big, pompous monument to the Ejercito de los Andes y San Martin.

The views on the city and the mountains when you climb are gorgeous -I made it in the late afternoon.
I rented the bike in Las Heras street at six and gave it back at half past eight.

Address: Cerro de la Gloria
Directions: North of City Center
