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.

  • Religious tourist attraction that should see. Our family was impressed by the beauty of his view, sculptures, the reviews and the quiet of the place. There is a store where to buy souvenirs and a small kiosk where visitors can consult about the attractions of Coquimbo. Note that Yes, the cleaning of the bathrooms was not very good. At least there was comfort and SOAP.
