Cruz Del Tercer Milenio, Coquimbo

3.6
#1 of 13 in Historic Sites in Coquimbo Region
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 place is not to my liking and has nothing to do with religion but because simply find it bad. Night is so badly lit that far may seem a crane or anything but an attraction that is intended to be the symbol of a city.

  • The only thing that is something worth this cross is your viewpoint, for those who do not want religion. This is a very well built concrete monument, but that he was so, cement-colored, seems that we need to finish it, the first viewpoint is quite precarious, does lack maintenance, it looks abandoned. The highest viewpoint is slightly better, should clean glasses and remove these gruesome heads of cures, personally cause me disgust, especially after all the that this church has abused children (is an opinion of mine, is that I went to put in a catoli enclosure) co) else some sculptures, Chapel, Museum that shows the history in photos of the construction of the cross and of course value objects that use these beings. The cross is located in a town of modest and humble, demonstrating his pomposity and power of wealth amid poverty, such as its moral foundations. The tourist is the viewpoint, and is poorly maintained.

  • If one travels this region if or if you should visit this place. Go up the elevator, they are fed up with meters of height, but you can see coquimo and la Serena in its glory. The best view.
