  • The statue of Christ is on the lookout, it ordered and taken from Italy one lady for your money in honor of her husband's rescue

  • Only by Christ not worthwhile but it's a nice exit if you like to walk. We took the ferry to casablanca, u$ s 0.20 though want to tourists charge one dollar, did a short walk though with rise and come to Christ. Then walk an approximately kilometer to a museum with things from the time of the missile crisis, I believe that he was dollar entry, but not enter. Then one or two kilometers of walking and you will come to the Fort of san carlos and the nose. It is a half-day output and you can return by ferry or directly take a bus or taxi in the fortress.

  • A huge and well made statue made of marble, and has a spectacular view of Havana, it is a perfect place for a tourist visit.

  • Christ of Havana is a beautiful and massive statue! It is just glorious and spectacular the see with the gorgous city view around it. A must see! The view of havana is amazing up here. Also the guy who takes photos of you is excellent! Be sure to tip him, he has great photography skills!
  • Great place. Highly recommended. Also great view to the City
  • A bit sparse but still a great view of central Havana.
  • Beautiful statue, not too many tourists so nice to visit. We took the local ferry over and the ferry staff tried to double charge us both ways. The price is 1 CUC each way, don't be conned into paying more. When you get off the ferry head up the hill rather than directly towards the Christ statue, it's a dead end.
  • One of the best views of Havana. Take the ferry over for 1 CUC
