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.

  • Raise that amount of steps is tiring for an out of State. But once you get the picture is stunning.

  • It is very close to the city centre and is one of the unique attractions that exist in Chilecito. The statue of Christ is very good and the views that are breathtaking. You can climb stairs (200 steps) and there is also a funicular but I don't know if it always works. Opposite there is a square with a craft fair. It is a nice place to go to take mates and spend a couple of hours.

  • 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
