Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    The Christ statue is only a 10-minute walk from the Inca ruins of Sacsayhuaman. We hiked up here for a good, free workout in preparation for a trip to 5000 meters altitude tomorrow, but we didn't want to pay the 70 soles per person entrance fee to the area with the ancient stones.

    (In a few days, we'll experience Machu Picchu, and there we'll surely satisfy our desire to see ancient Inca ruins.)

    Instead, we walked over to the Cristo Blanco statue, a 10-minute walk from the ticket booth at the entrance to Sacsayhuaman, and no entrance fee is required for the statue.

    Buses full of tourists are dropped off at the statue, and there are sellers of all the usual touristy stuff - all of which affects the experience of the attraction. But Mr. Christ is indeed elevated enough in all his whiteness - and the three dramatic crosses next to him make an even greater impression.

    On the way back from Cristo Blanco, it's possible to take some quite good photos into the Sacsayhuaman area. Completely free.

    Very interesting history. This was purchased from the US in the 1800s and shipped with a statue of Geronimo on top. Seemed everyone though it was OK since it looked like a "native". It was not until later they replaced the statue. The statue is NOT of a specific person but rather a generic representation.

    The Arch of Santa Clara represented the union between Peru and Bolivia which lasted just 3 years. This archway is one of the few representations of that short union. The archway is absolutely incredible, built from solid stone and dauntingly large. Atop the archway sits the statue of Santa Clara. The archway is the major access point from the Plaza de Armas to the impressive Basilica de la Merced. It is worth walking through this archway while in Cusco and admiring it's construction.

    The park is more a traffic island , the fountain is bright and vibrant with the puma very striking. The water cascades on the other side and you can walk under the waterfall - a bit of fun.
