The large monument, history and view is worth the long automobile drive but not if you're riding public transportation unless you're a very devoted.

The views from this Christ monument are spectacular. The feeling of the strong religious sentiment is present everywhere. One walks away with a feeling of renewed spirituality.

Great to learn, about the faith from the people who walk, in a very up inclined walk road, to meet the monument.

We visited your beautiful church on September 25th, 2017. In your museum room I noticed a little white and black dog licking his or her leg and was laying next to the status of the big dog, I think for protection and comfort that little dog came to your church to be protected by Jesús. After we left I wanted to get some food and water for the poor little dog only to hear from someone that the dog can’t move as he has a broken leg. I have tried calling and have left 6 messages for your office and my girlfriend even spoke to someone at your church but was given a disconnected number that doesn’t work. I am willing pay to rescue that dog if you are willing to take him to the vet (doctor) to fix his leg. It was so powerful to see a little dog coming for help to Jesús. I will pay for this dogs surgery, food and water for as long as someone adopts him. Please call me back at 619.572.7700. This animal is in severe pain. I was helpless and didn’t know what to do, Please let us save this poor dog. He feels pain. We can help. Sincerely, Ramon Pourtrymour

Take a Taxi. It is a long walk and very steep. Taxies in Guanajuato are not expensive and decent.
