Cristo de los Faroles, Cordoba
(3.9/5 based on 420+ reviews on the web)
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. Using our custom trip planner, Cordoba attractions like Cristo de los Faroles can form part of a personalized travel itinerary.
