This site honors and remembers a significant event in history. Good on you Pope John Paul. You made a big impact.

Bit if a windy road and a few stairs but well worth the visit to look over the city from the statue.

It's about 100-150 steps to the statue. Steep steps. Best time would be in the morning else gets very hot. Very impressive statue.

The walk to Christa Rae takes about an hour from the cafes on the beach in Metiut. The walk has stairs all the way to the top and it gives you a fantastic view of Dili Harbour. So if you are looking to exercise while you are in Dili this walk is just the thing.

This tourist feature consists of a statue and a toilet. The toilet is the better of the two, simply because there are very few public facilities for travellers in East Timor. The size of the statue is impressive and is cleverly positioned to be visible from the statue of Christo Rei to the east of the city. Whilst an important commemoration for many Catholic Timorese nationals, the token nature of the statue to the ruling Indonesians at the time of the statue's installation is obvious because the Pope's head is way too small, in proportion to the rest of the statue.
