Since June 2008 the Pierre Auger Observatory has been taking data in its final configuration. Since then two main upgrades have been completed: the High Elevation Angle Telescopes (HEAT) and an infill in the surface region covered by HEAT, with the main goal of bringing the energy threshold down to 1017 eV. In this paper, I will give an overview of the main recent results of the Auger Observatory. More specifically, I will discuss the all-particle energy spectrum and the evidence for the GZK features, the measurement of the elongation rate and the evidence for anisotropy in the subset of the highest energy events. Systematic uncertainties will be discussed.
