Looks better at a distance. There's not a lot to this attraction. Giant statue of Jesus. This is however a spectacular viewpoint overlooking Cusco. Great spot for a panoramic picture of the city and the mountains behind.

A cool little piece history, with a great view of the city. The monument sits on a promontory above the city, and there are often vendors selling tourist trinkets around, and the site can be reached by foot from the city (a pretty good 45 minute hike), or by taxi (a ten minute drive). If you are spending any acclimation... More

This statue sits high on a hill behind the Monasterio Hotel. Our guide told us it was a gift from non-Christian groups in the City of Cusco. It is much smaller than the Christ Statue in Rio but still beautiful.

This is a must see while in Cusco. I would not recommend hiking to it. Easy to take a taxi. But make sure your taxi is round trip. Hard to find a taxi up there. The view of Cusco City is AWESOME!

When you land in Cusco with that altitude buzz in your head, grab a few glasses of warm water with coca leaves and start walking slowly up the stairs to meet christ on the hill. The 6-8 km will test your cardiopulmonary fitness and get you prepared for your expedition!

While this is a notable statue of the Cusco area, it seems less impressive up close than from a distance. I would say that, if you are taking a ride on the Panoramic Tourist Bus, as we did, and you visit this statue as one of the many "drive-bys", then it is Ok to get out and take a close... More

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

You can find these statues in almost every major town, they have a very long and interesting history on the changes to their religious practices. Well worth the visit

History lessen. The statue was a gift given to the town of Cusco by Palestinians who had found refuge there.

We enjoyed the site. It is very busy so do not expect quite time here unless you come very early or late in the day. The view is exciting. You can get many nice images from the site.
