Mirador del portezuelo, Chilecito

Dutifully surveying Chilecito with a watchful gaze and outstretched arms, Mirador del portezuelo was erected in honor of the city's 100th anniversary. The stately 16 m (53 ft) tall statue of Christ stands on top of a platform reached by 200 stairs. The statue is the work of sculptor Alejandro Carrizo, whose landmark invites devotees to ascend in order to strengthen their faith. Once you've climbed to the top, take a moment to appreciate the panoramic views of the city and surrounding countryside. You'll also find a water fountain feature, tourist information center, restrooms, and a confectionery stand nearby.

  • Very beautiful place, with a beautiful view, just climbing all those steps, but is quite rested, would be good to make the funicular work we went three times and none worked.

  • Beautiful view. A very nice vantage point to admire the view of Chilecito. You have to climb a staircase of 200 steps to reach the Christ. There is a candy to eat and take a good choice
