Inspirock Rating:
4.1/5 based on 400+ reviews on the web
Admire the artistry and poignancy of Monumento a Cristo Rey, a religious sculpture set in a scenic spot. Sitting atop a mountain, the 1944 statue of Jesus Christ replaced a smaller version destroyed by bombers during the anti-religious regime of President Plutarco Elias Calles. As such, it has come to symbolize religious freedom in the country, serving as a reminder of the secular/sectarian Cristero War of the 1920s. Displaying a striking art deco style, the monument attracts visitors with its aesthetic appeal, as well as its message.

  • Got place in the morning to five in the morning to mass... Ed a place very popular... It's quite cold is right in the Centre but I recommend it... It has a great view of the hills surrounding the city and its sunrises are impressive. The only downside is that they have neglected the baths... are very dirty and smell pretty bad

  • Catholic or not, is a city that is worth. The view is spectacular to sierra de Guanajuato and all the shoal. The Christ the King is impressive as sculpture and if you are a believer, a source of inspiration, energy and moments of reflection.
