Monumento a Cristo Rey, Guanajuato
(4.2/5 based on 420+ 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. Arrange your visit to Monumento a Cristo Rey and discover more family-friendly attractions in Guanajuato using our Guanajuato itinerary planner.

  • I recommend you visit the Parador blood of Christ, this back from the hub, it has a Museum of mining, Museum of the catrinas, and can buy good wine and jams brand Guanajuato, you can stay and enjoy a breathtaking view of the mountains and a special tranquility in the middle of nowhere, coexist with the inhabitants of the area and its culture you take the path to the beaker on the road to Guanajuato capital.

  • the view is great, and the place very quaint throughout the State of Guanajuato (you see almost everywhere). If you want to make a trekking walk is a great solution.
