Purgatory Trekking – William Fevre

We head for the San Juan de Pirque sector, at 9 km distance from our hotel. There we will see Purgatory Hill, recognizable from several points of Santiago. At these foothills we encounter the William Fevre vineyard, one of the many vineyards in Pirque. Thanks to them we have access to their lands, being able to know a bit more about the wine culture of this country’s central zone and agricultural life around it. This trekking takes about 1 hour of climbing and takes us to a plateau from where one can enjoy beautiful views from the Sierra de Ramón, the sclerophyllous forest, the Maipo river and its homonymous valley.
