Cristo Rey, Cali

4.4
#1 of 19 in Sightseeing in Cali
Monument Tourist Spot
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.

  • The view is great and the photo with the Christ the Redeemer should not miss, by little I felt that I was in Rio haha

  • It is a place very cool to go, the panoramic view of the city is spectacular, especially at night, and is free (just pay the parking lot of the truck). It's a plan for everyone from solo to plan couple, family with young children. Travel by first visiting the statue of Sebastián de Belalcázar, can be then upload to Cristo Rey, and down stop for pizza at any of the many places that there is. You can visit Jack Tejada, either before or after, those are some of the strategic points to visit in Cali. The only downside of Christ the King is that you should go in their own car or taxi (taxi comes out very expensive). You have to be attentive to the schedule, because while in the evening is when he is better appreciated the place, it is only open until 7 pm (Saturdays and Sundays) until 8 pm.

  • Beautiful place with amazing view of Cali city. You can do hikes and drink or eat something afterwards at the top of the hill, where the "Señor de los Cristales" is at.
  • The panoramic view of the city and the rest of the valley is breathtaking.
  • Amazing place! So so beatiful and the food omg
  • This is a must-see in Cali. It is not a must see because the particular awe of the statue--Christ's remarkable sacrifice notwithstanding--but because of where it takes you. The viewpoint over Cali, in addition to the views west towards the Parque Nacional, and possible glimpses of the Central Cordillera above Cali's tropical haze all conspire to inspire. It's a worthwhile trip (with cheap parking!). Also, if pizza--and only pizza--is on your to-do list, it's also the place. No less than 16 pizza joints are strewn upon the stretch up to the Cristo Rey. Why only pizza? I have no idea. But they all have views and it fits the bill for an evening watching the sun set through the misty climes.
  • Loved the view. It is a little crowded but totally worth it
