Cruz Del Tercer Milenio, Coquimbo

#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Coquimbo Region
Monument Religious Site
Admire the artistry of Cruz Del Tercer Milenio, a striking structure that remains one of the tallest landmarks in all of South America. Built by the Catholic Church between 1999 and 2001, the 93 m (305 ft) tall cross was designed to mark the start of the new millennium, an important date in the Christian faith. The cross juts out impressively from a triangular prism base that disappears into the rocky hill beneath it. The three-tiered base includes a museum detailing the creation of the monument, a level dedicated to prayer, and a viewing platform.

  • This Grand Cross that can be seen from Coquimbo and La Serena was built in El Vigia hill facing the sea. From the arms you can see the city and the sea from the heights. On the first level there is a chapel and a museum. There are also scenes of the stations of the cross. It is open until 17:30 hrs and the input value is $2,000, is there a discount for seniors. It is a good overview. Can be reached by bus or car.
