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.

  • 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
