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.

    It is interesting to get to Christ by comparison with the Rio de Janeiro and the view of Cali that can be. You can see neighborhoods and up to the important buildings of Cali from there. Adds much to ride the refreshing wind that you can meet up. There are typical food stands. Well organized parking and surveillance.

    It is a place to see the entire city of Cali and some nearby municipalities... It is a place that you must visit in this beautiful city.

    A must-see site for the visitor and resident! Safe, nearby. Missing best places to eat and enjoy the traditional meals of Valle del Cauca

    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.

    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
