Cristo Rey, Cali

4.4
Climb to the top of the Hill of Crystals to see Cristo Rey. The large statue of Jesus Christ stands 26 m (85 ft) tall and overlooks the village. Made of iron and concrete, the statue commemorates the 50-year anniversary of the end of the War of a Thousand Days, a Colombian civil war. Take it slow while scaling the hill so you can view the sculptures of Carlos Andrés Gómez, who has sculpted various works into the side of the hill.

  • There isn't much only statue posts view and a restaurant makes only a little cold you can see everything

  • From the viewpoint of Christ King can be seen throughout the city and a large portion of the valle del cauca. Easy to get, I gone about 20 times to bring friends and family without any inconvenience. These awhile, you take photos, eat something simple, hear the history and ready. It is more a necessary step when you go to visit sites. A taxy transport can cost between 40mil pesos or 50mil pesos. In über may be more economical.

  • I love it! I'm a local and I visit it with my family. It's just good to feel the wind and enjoy the view. I recommend it if you want to soak up the atmosphere. The view and the food are Colombia traditional
  • Very nice tourist attraction. The place have a nice entrance (even wheelchair friendly). You will have a lot of food options, souvenirs and clean bathrooms. I would be crowded and noisy during the weekend, specially for sunset time but if you wait enough time you will get a great view of the city night lights. Remember to bring a sweater or jacket, it's quite cold compared to the temperature of the rest of Cali.
  • Worth hiking rather than driving! Don't be fooled by the locals telling you to get a taxi. Careful of the spiky succulents.
  • Best place to visit in Cali. This place has a lot of history associated with it. The monument is beautiful and you get a really good view of the city. Must visit place if you come to Cali.
  • Very nice view but very crowded and the road is very dangerous... There are not good restaurants and the existing one only receive cash

Where to stay in Cali

A huge selection of hostels and mid-range hotels make Cali one of the area's most tourist-friendly destinations, offering plenty of comfortable and affordable rooms for every budget and style. Visitors with deeper pockets generally go for the city's five-star hotels, most of which feature swimming pools and fitness facilities, and offer sweeping views from their rooftop bars.
