“Huge Statue overlooking Arona”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2012

There is a huge statue of San Carlone overlooking the village of Arona, just above the Hotel Concorde. It was closed when we visited, but we could see it was through the gate. It was huge. A great restaurant and bar right across the street. Can't remember the name of the restaurant,but it was great.

“Beautiful Statue, wonderful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2012

Unlike other visitors, we decided to climb to the top from Arona, It was a steep 2km climb but well worth it for the wonderful scenery. The statue is gigantic, and reminds you of The Statue of liberty, being built by the same person. There is a fees to climb to the pedestral and more to climb right to the top. The whole thing is well marked and has lovely gardens.
The climb to the top is only for the brave as it is straight up inside and slightly claustrophobic. The view from both is phenomenal though. It is closed for lunch from 1 to 3 and ther is just one place to have lunch nearby.
