  • Beautiful statue overlooking the coastline. Easy to drive up, wander around, and a stunning view of the area. Highly recommended.
  • Great view, had to pay for parking about 3/4 way up the hill was only €3 an hour and then walk the rest or take one of the taxis to the top
  • Great views !
  • Impressive
  • Lovely vantage point ... a must see, beyond their personal religious creed. For the rest (usual for this type of attraction) everything is business: parking required. 1 km from Christ and shuttle service (almost mandatory) surcharge. Exorbitant prices of first, unjustified "fee" of the second (which at most should fall within the parking fees). Last but not least: ugly countless themed merchandising shops.
