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.

  • Not as busy as Rios Christ but still nice to take a look. We paid 26bs for 2 people up and down with the cable car. Good to fill in an hour or so  more »
  • In Cochabamba Bolivia travel spots going to Jesus Christ. South America Brazil ranked third in the world and Rio yesusang, this is where the world's no. 2 and no. 1 in height in South America. (# 1 in the world is only as high as the real Jesus, look at Poland here is one such) 2500 meters above sea level, the car the night bar is twisted, that's just in Korea to have bad breath than usual. So when you go to see the yesusang cable car use tele-Perry Ko. I'm here at the dawn of that high because many locals put up the stairs. Harder died. Here you see in Cochabamba is really the best. You really shouldn't miss this night bar car spots just like curly O'Shea.

  • The view is amazing. The lift wasn't working and we wanted to stay to see the city at night with all the lights, so we had to make a deal with a taxi to wait for us, or we would have been walking home. No one is allowed to go up there after 6pm this time of year. It was breath taking with all the city lights too, worth staying late for.
  • This was my seventh visit to the Cristo, yet the first time I have happened upon it when it was open to climb the interior. For just 2Bs you can climb up as high as the arms. While the first set of stairs might look a little scary, there is a landing on each floor as you go up and down, with easier spiral staircases taking you the rest of the way. There are holes in the statue that give beautiful views of the city (I never knew what those holes were for!).
  • I like it a lot even though I couldn't climb up to the shoulders. It is possible to get inside the statue and climb it up to get an incredible view of the city but there are no lights inside the Christ so usually it closes pretty early. It is possible to reach the Christ statue by stairs but I would suggest to go up through teleférico and down by walking.
  • No entrance fee (unless you go by taxi + 3 BOB for the taxi to access the drive way). We went on a Monday, the cable cars do not operate on a Monday so we either had to climb all of the steps up from the bottom or get a taxi from close to the cable car station. We paid 20 BOB for the taxi and 3 BOB for it to access the gates premises to take us to the top. It was not busy when we arrived and had a clear sunny day to get some good photos. Sadly we couldn't access inside the statue for better views but that's fine...
  • Great Instagram place. The statue of Jesus is bigger than the one in Rio de Janeiro and is the second largest in the world. Definitely worth checking out for yourself if your in Bolivia.
