I visited this religious monument as the very presence of it on the side of the Lisbon bridge really draws you in. You can go a,most to the top in a lift for 5€ and once there the view of Lisbon and through 360 degrees is breathtaking. A fantastic monument to mans belief and one to be visited and respected.

We took ferry from Cais do Sodre to Cacilhas, then 101 bus to there. This 92 ft. tall figure of Christ, mounted on a 269 ft. pedestal. You can see the statue from various viewpoints in the City. It is fun to take the ferry, got different experience and view point. From the top of the pedestal, you can get... More

A little distance from Lissabon - took a ferry to Almada, walked along the waterfront - lots of run down buildings on the way, but suddenly two nice restaurants popped up out of the blue. An elevator carries you to the plateau above the Tejo - and from there it's a 20 minute walk to the Christo Rei. Great place... More

The site around the Cristo Rei was a bit of a construction site when we went but we still enjoyed going up the statue for the great view of the 25th of April bridge and Lisbon. Very easy to get there from central Lisbon. Just take the ferry from Cais do Sodre to Cacilhas then take the 101 bus.

We were glad to attend this monument and panoramic point on our way south to Algarve. You can see allmost all nice places of the center from the other side and watch the traffic on the main bridge. It is usually quite windy here. Parking was free, plenty of space.

first the transportation to the place is not easy... took a metro then a train then a bus then walked over a hill for long and finally we found it close... even the garden around was close!! and the statue was not that big.. so it was not a successful trip for us.

Take ferry from cais do sodre, then take bus from harbor, do not try to walk especially if it's summer this way is longer than you see. 5 euros to use elevator I think it's worth. Panorama is wonderful.
