“Amazing views over Lisbon”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Cristo Rei is well worth a visit what ever your religion.
only 5 euros each to go in an elevator to the base of Christ's feet.

Beautiful panoramic views and photo oportuntiies to be had.

Really enjoyable afternoon,

“Beautiful views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

This was on our "if we have time" list and I am so glad we had time. The ferry ride over was easy and the bus ride was easy too. Beautiful way to look back over the city.

“Breathtaking”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2013

It's well worth the trip across the river to see this megalith. The views are breathtaking too.
Would recommend getting a cab up the hill from the ferry terminal. It's a bit difficult to find the right bus stop at the terminal but easier to find it on the return journey.

“Great views from the other side of the river”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

The Christo-Rei is not that easy to find when driving from Lisbon. As always, signs disappear at critical junctions and although the statue is enormous so you would think you would just head towards it you have to wind through a provincial town to get there.
But the views make it worthwhile. The impact of the statue is diminished from being to close to it but you can take a 5 euro (half price for kids) lift to the top for slightly better views than you would get from the bottom. The best view of Christ is from the plane on the flight in.
Be aware if you are less able that there are about 40/50 steps at the top when you get out of the lift which is not mentioned at the bottom.
