El Cristo de La Habana, Havana
(4.1/5 based on 500+ 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.

  • Worth visiting to see the view across the whole of Havana, get the ferry to Casablanca and walk up the hill to the statue and then walk along to the Cabana fort which is well worth a visit 
  • It's a big statue, but the particularity of the place is that from here you can admire the panorama of the city. Located near the castle of "El Morro" and the House of Chè.

  • The canon firing of the 9 o'clock was an amazing ceremony. There is a really nice exhibition of Che Guevara and the views of the downtown Havana and the ocean are spectacular. Visit the Cabaña close to the 6pm so you can catch the sunset and stay for the canon firing.
  • Incredible architecture a must go must see place of interest if youre visiting habana
  • Nice place to visit. When I visited this place, it was not very prepared for the tourist, but I can enjoy. What I enjoyed was the view form this place. We can see downtown Havana from this place.
  • 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.
