El Cristo de la Concordia, Cochabamba
(4.1/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
Dominating San Pedro Hill, El Cristo de la Concordia represents the largest statue of Christ in the world--surpassing its more famous counterpart in Rio by a few centimeters. Outstretching its arms in a welcoming embrace, the steel and cement statue was supposed to be 33 m (108 ft) tall (matching Christ's age at the time of his death) but the few centimeters were added to reflect that Christ actually lived a bit longer than 33 years. Ride a cable car or climb the 1,250 steps from the base of the mountain to the top and you'll be rewarded with the views of the valley and the highest mountain peaks. On Sunday, you can climb to the top of the statue for even better vistas. Note that theft has been reported along the footpath. Bring your own water and snacks.

  • Is a belvedere eat the image of Christ, about 2,800 m above sea level. Must have a pretty sight if you have snow in the winter in the mountains around. The view gives an impression of dryness.

  • Nice ride, 100% recommended as you l'ermite have a panoramic view of the entire city. I recommend going up in the cable car and down walking (unless you have very good physical condition and are accustomed to the heights, because otherwise the ascent becomes very heavy!)
