El Cristo de la Concordia, Cochabamba

Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • Beautiful place to photograph valluno sunset and talk of life with friends! I loved it! You can get there by the available cable car by 6 bs. Or take a taxi 20 bs. which is faster a little more expensive but very efficient without long lines.

  • You have 3 options to upload the Christ: 1) by cable car, 2) by tiers, 3) in auto. A place that you should necessarily visit if in Cochabamba, BUT avoid going past 5 o'clock, becomes dangerous.

  • The climb is worth! Cable car for the climb because it was very hot and the descent on foot. We were 5 and no problems! I enjoyed the view and see Bolivians relax and have a good time up there. It's nice. I got a weekend and apparently the cable car does not week.
