Statue of Christ, Cusco

(2.8/5 based on 480+ reviews on the web)
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. A visit to Statue of Christ represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Cusco vacation builder to plot your vacation.

  • Nice view! Exciting story of the giver of the figure. Reminds a bit of shape in Rio, but ok. A tourist attraction and nothing more than that.

  • You can do step when they visit Sacsayhuaman, this closely. It is a simple visit, it is the landscape that surrounds it and the incredible view of the city of cusco, and the plaza de Armas.

  • If you get a chance, go to the top of the mountain and enjoy the statute and view from the base of the statute.  more »
