Cristo de los Faroles, Cordoba

3.9
A stone cross inspired by Friar Diego José de Cádiz, Cristo de los Faroles is located in Córdoba's most attractive square. The monument is protected by a small fence surrounded by lanterns, which earned it the nickname of "Christ of the Lanterns." When the lanterns are lit the shadow of the cross casts an ephemeral outline on the buildings that backdrop it.

  • In Piazza Cappuccini, solo is the Cristo de los Faroles, the place gives off an aura of spirituality and strength. Better visit him at dusk when they begin to light the lanterns that surround the Christ

  • We arrived on time at dusk, an incredible guide of the freetour, so as we saw in the photo have to appreciate the beautiful silence

  • It is in the plaza of the Capuchins, one pretty square all paved, seeing him invites to meditation, to the fervor, surrounded by eight lanterns that illuminate at dusk, the bottom is filled with candles and flowers, highly recommended a visit.

  • Understand that this place was (and is) meant to be a place where believers could go to pray when troubled at any time of the day and especially the night including very early morning when the churches are closed. It means a lot to the local people and its not a "tourist" destination - anything but!
  • Very poor and dirty place, I did not like it
  • Nice square.
  • Principal religious symbol in Cordoba.
  • Place emblematic... in this beautiful city... where breathing spell, calm...
