Categories: Monuments, Sacred & Religious Sites, Tourist Spots
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.

Kasandra GarridoNice and cheap. Spectacular view is seen all over town in 360 degrees, super comfortable access (lift and stairway) and the entry comes with a pass to the Museum (which is the story of the cross) is a giant monument, very cool.show original
