#95 of 494 in Things to do in Cusco
Climb a hill near the city to see the towering Statue of Christ, an imposing figure overlooking the city and surrounding area. The statue, reminiscent of Rio’s Christ the Redeemer, was a gift from Palestinian Christians in 1945 as a token of gratitude for the kind refuge they received in the city. Admire the white Christ sculpture, which looks upon the city with open arms. Take in the stunning panoramic view and take advantage of photographic opportunities here.

Where to stay in Cusco

One of Peru's most visited cities, Cusco boasts lodgings suitable for every traveler's needs. Scores of hotels ensure plenty of comfortable rooms for tourists coming to explore the nearby archeological sites. Despite the abundance of hotels, room rates remain among the highest in the country, especially during peak season (June to mid-September). Budget-conscious visitors can choose from a range of hostels and small family-run hotels, many located in quiet streets just a walk away from the town's central area.
