El Cristo de la Concordia, Cochabamba

4.1
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.

  • Very cute monolith and unexpectedly the Christ in the world. You can climb by foot or by cable car. I recommend upload by Lugano (6.5 b) and get off on foot.

  • We got and we descended by cable car, it is a short but beautiful stretch. From the top is seen all over the city and the nearby mountains. It is an interesting place to meet and to have a panoramic view of the entire city.

  • The world's largest image. It is a must visit you must do if you're for Cochabamba. There is the option to upload in the cable car or taxi (eye that the cable car does not work every day, was a Tuesday and did not work), but there is nothing better than to make it walk and climbing the 1000 steps which has. There are amazing views along the way and obviously the most beautiful is what awaits above, all the stunning views of the city. Highly recommended!

  • For being a monument of this size and fame it is extremely inexpensive to visit and even climb inside of. The view is fantastic as can be imagined. Be aware that the first set of steps inside of the statue is quite narrow, and you're only holding on to a piece of rebar as you go up it. The trick is to place your right foot on the mini-square-step and the left foot on the larger ones (on your way down that particular set, try going sideways or even backwards) . The rest of the stories are typical steel circular steps with handrails and feel much safer. There is zero artificial lighting in there, but the light from the peep holes ia juuust enough to see. The peepholes are not large enough to take wide angle shots out of unless you stick your hand out through the holes. Sounds scary, but all you need to do is bring a small camera or just a phone but absolutely have a lanyard on your device that is firmly tied to your wrist. There, problem solved. Oh, one other thing, some floors smell of urine. But in the end, it was a unique experience that you can't really find fault with, and will be forever glad you went through.
  • Nice place, great views, kind of dirty and if you are on a wheelchair it's impossible to reach the top of it.
  • This is a very nice place to visit in cochabamba bolivia
  • Pretty cool to see, it is absolutely huge but you'll pretty much be done after about 5 minutes. The views from the top are pretty amazing and there are some great photo opportunities but as far as the statue goes... It's alright. However, you can't really complain about a free attraction!
  • The most beautiful place to see #Cochabamba and enjoy with the family
