Cruz Del Tercer Milenio, Coquimbo

(4/5 based on 500 reviews on the web)
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.

  • Beautiful architecture and beautiful landscape but I didn't like that the have so many valuables when they could finish off and improve the city and instead put objects in the area.

  • It is definitely a place to visit if you're in the fourth region. There is a wonderful view of the Bay and you'll see in addition, Coquimbo and la Serena from the height.
