Cruz Del Tercer Milenio, Coquimbo
(4/5 based on 440+ 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.

  • I think without a doubt it is something to do in Coquimbo, a very interesting history the as built. The view is very nice although the cross windows are small and at times of high turnout it is difficult to have time to watch or take pictures. I think that the surroundings of the cross could be improved to be more friendly with tourists, and could take advantage, putting restaurants or shows alrtesanales in the surrounding area would greatly enhance more attractiveness. Also we had to wait 20 minutes app to upload already had many people. But it is worth it.

  • This icon of La Serena where beyond the Catholic story that has you can see the dimension of the cities of Coquimbo and La Serena, has many problems related to the accessibility of persons with disabilities wheelchair users. Its access is via large staircases having a ramp relegated to une parking closed. Observation of the city show is wonderful and as majestic engineering work.

  • 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.
