A bit remote from Lisbon city, we would definitively recommend to take time to visit this milestone. The view from the top over the city and the Tage bay is outstanding. Access to the top by elevator and 74 steps costs 5€ but offer the best view. Car parking is free.

If you want to take magnificent pics of Lisbon: this is the place to visit. Take the elevator to the top and start clicking! It is not easy to find (as a tourist) but it's worthwile. Only disturbing thing is the noise from the bridge.

He has a great view from up there and you can join him, well most of the way there, for 5 Euro. It is actually worth it. The elevator stops at 3 and you have about 40 - 50 steps to take which are very narrow and smooth, so a fall risk. Be careful.

Toured this while on a bus from or Princess Cruise. The place is high on the hill and overlooks parts of Lisbon. Took many pictures for viewing later. You see the Brige resembling the Golden Gate, built by American Bridge

This was just a short walk from the Mecure Lisboa Almeda hotel where we were staying. Not being religious we had no interest in the structure per se or in the tacky shop near the top. What is superb though is the views of Lisbon you can get from the open top.

Cristo Rei is a definite must see attraction! My boyfriend and I started the day at the Castelo de S. Jorge and decided spontaneously to visit the statue. It is very easy to get as you can get the commuter ferry to Cacilhas from Cais do Sodré. On the other side you can either walk up to the statue (quite... More

We decided to visit Christo Rei having seen it from Lisbon Castle . We caught the very inexpensive ferry from Cais de Sodre to Cacilhas which took less than 15 mins . There is a bus (101) from the ferry terminal in Cacilhas to the National Sanctuary or alternatively you can walk (uphill) which took us approx 30 mins. The... More

a must visit! you should reach the top through the elevator! the view of the whole Lisbon city is magnificent. The statue looks exactly like the one in Rio de Janeiro. Do not miss to spend a few minutes to study why this was built!

What a tremendous view. It really is spectacular and great to see the whole of Lisbon. We went at midday and there was no queue. €10 per person seems a bit expensive.
