Cristo Rey, Cali

(4.4/5 based on 850+ reviews on the web)
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. To visit Cristo Rey and get the most from your holiday in Cali, create itinerary details personal to you using our Cali travel itinerary maker.

  • Great views of the city. Rather safe to arrive and visit. Many sports enthusiasts walk, run, or bike to the top. Some snacks and artesanias are available on the way up.
