El Cristo de La Habana, Havana
Categories: Landmarks, Tourist Spots
View the city from a site of cultural importance at El Cristo de La Habana. This statue of Jesus Christ was designed by a Cuban artist and made with marble from Italy that was personally blessed by the Pope. Standing 20 m (66 ft) high and atop a hill, you can spot this attraction from many locations in the city, however, you only get the panoramic city views from the statue itself.

Beautiful fort to explore and watch the cannon fire.
Cannon fires at 9PM, but I recommend going well before sunset as there's a lot to see while it's still light. Also great museum of Che Guevara.
Best visited at night for the 'cañonazo de las 9' cannon shot ceremony when there is usually a good buzz about the place with live music adding to the atmosphere. A thought should also be given to the people who suffered here during the early years of the revolution when it was used as a prison and execution site.

Enjoyed visiting the Fort, it was neat to see and the cannon shoot we witnessed was entertaining. It is a bit of a tourist destination so expect to see the tables of souvenirs everywhere you look.
Impressive 18th-century fortress, one of the largest I have ever visited, probably only comparable to the San Felipe fortress in Cartagena, Colombia. The fort rises probably 50 meters over a cliff onto the sea. Fantastic views of Habana harbour and city. A cab over here will only cost about $5-10 from Old Habana.
