Founded in 1890, Piriapolis ranks among the premier beach resort destinations in the country. The city's founder, Francisco Piria, bought the long stretch of coastal land with the express purpose of establishing a resort town. After completion of his own residence in 1897--now one of the main attractions in Piriapolis--Piria added hotels, amenities, a port, and a steam train line. Now renamed in his honor, the resort city attracts visitors with its beaches, seaside amenities, and surrounding landscape. Piriapolis is in Maldonado Department.
