El Cristo de la Concordia, Cochabamba

#1 of 25 in Things to do in Cochabamba
Monument Landmark
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.

  • Great view of Cochabamba, smog excluded. The hike up to the Cristo is great exercise and provides beautiful views, but is only safe to climb on the weekends. The top of the Cristo is safe enough, and you'll see tourists and Bolivians alike.
  • Great view of the city from up here. Definitely a must see for any visitors.
  • We were in Cochabamba and decided to visit this on a nice Sunday afternoon and I really wish we waited until the Monday. The views are great, the statue is nice but on a Sunday we had to que 2hours heading up(for the lift as everyone warns about being robbed if you walk) and 1.5 hours on the way down. Overall just felt drained & tired after thr experience
  • Must visit place at Cochabamba. Nice view of the city here.

Where to stay in Cochabamba

You can find dozens of inexpensive hotels and budget-friendly hostels between the main bus terminal and the city center in Cochabamba. The only drawback to staying in that area is that some of its side streets can be unsafe late at night, so choose carefully if you plan to go out after dark. Most foreign visitors choose to stay at one of the hotels near the main city square, where you can take advantage of good eating options that are relatively difficult to find elsewhere in town.
