El Cristo de La Habana, Havana

(4.3/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
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. Plan to see El Cristo de La Habana and other attractions that appeal to you using our Havana vacation generator.

  • Short trip . You get a great view of Havana. Lots of people selling souvenirs. do not buy them very expensive. go to the market much better  more »
  • The statue of the Christ of Havana lies across the river facing towards the Old Town but close to the house occupied by Che Guevarra. It is a commanding presence and affords great views....  more »
  • This statue was commissioned to protect Batista's wife of her husband during the civil war. It is amazing, but Batista survived all the attempt on his life, lived to old age and died a natural death. It offers a very nice view of the city.
