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.

  • A good place to see the city, I do not recommend as point due to the careless to it and above all the area, it is not recommended to go too late the amount of cleferos (addicts) that exist in the area and the lack of security.

  • We went up to the look out and enjoyed nice views of the city. I also visited the dry area next to the road just before you get to the Christ, this area has some interesting native cacti. Saw 6 or so ...  more »
  • You can get up with the cable car or by cab for a very low charge. Take a relax on the cafeteria close to the monument and enjoy the view over the city, taking a coca tee or excellent fruit juices.  more »

  • 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!
  • 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.
  • So he stands taller than the Christ in Rio... but sadly his surroundings are just not as impressive. Its a worth while half day outting but dont get your hopes up.
  • Great views of Cochabama - impressive statue and sunset views.
  • Great view of the city from up here. Definitely a must see for any visitors.

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.
