Mirador del portezuelo, Chilecito
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
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. Use our Province of La Rioja tour planner to visit Mirador del portezuelo on your trip to Province of La Rioja, and learn what else travelers and our writers recommend seeing nearby.
