You will have an amazing Lisbon view and also a view of the past, because the building architecture will take you back to the "Estado Novo" period.

we took the ferry to this. if doing this if your walking it is quite a walk up to it so ensure good footwear. There are buses and trams that take you near so worth making use of them. You can go up a lift to the feet of jesus, but we didn't do this. We went just to see... More

100% worth the trek even if you're in town for a couple days at most - the statue itself is impressive to see (makes you appreciate Rio's version even more I suppose!) and there's an incredible view overlooking Vasco Da Gama bridge that you can easily enjoy for a very long time. Highly recommended.

there is a stunning view over Lisbon either you go up the statue or not.if you go up to the top you have an amazing 360º over the Tagus river shores,It´s well worth it.

I took the ferry over to go visit the Cristo Rei. I decided to walk up...and up and up and up! Following the signs that lead up to the sanctuary. I arrived at 19:45 and it apparently closes at 18:45- so I saw the back of Cristo Rei! Would have been nice if they had put the opening hours on... More

The big statue of Cristo Rei, imitating the Rio de Janeeiro Crist statue, is an impressing monument seen from far. It is located on the southern bank of the Tagus river in the municipality of Almada city. There are plenty parking places nearby The access is by crossing the river through the nearby 25thv April bridge. Almada is quite close... More

Certainly a place worth visiting. If you are not into the religious experience, the view is also devine. It is a long walk from the ferry, especially in summer time, so take the bus or drive up there. By the way, the bar does not sell anything other than water, sodas, chips, icecream and sweets. No food!

Very easy to get to. Get the metro to Cais do Sodre and get a boat over to the other side. Once you come off the boat and out of the exit, turn left and keep going straight, in front of you will see lots of bus stops. Find the stand for the 101 bus and this will take you... More

You have to cross the river to get here but if you want a breathtaking view then it is worth it. Taking the ferry from cais do sodre to cacilhas, then the 101 bus direct to the cristo rei, you are presented with this towering monument and a spectacular view (especially on a clear day!). You can go inside and... More
