With a hangover it was a bit of an effort getting all the way to the top of the monument from Pombal Square, Metro, Ferry and Bus, but once you get there and get up in the elevator it is worth the view. There is a gift shop at the top too, although we didn't buy anything.

When in Lisbon a visit to see Cristo Rei (Christ the King) monument is a must! Not only is the monument spectacular from afar it's really impressive up close. The views of Lisbon, the 25 de Abril bridge and the Rio Tejo are awesome especially from above - the aerial views from the foot of Christ are just phenomenal. It... More

You see the monument for the first time from mainland Lisbon, think about the statue in Brazil and decide you wish to visit the Portuguese equivalent. If going by public transport, first take the ferry from the ferry port behind the Cais Sodré station. If you have a zapper version of the green travel card, you can use it on... More

You can take an elevator to the platform underneath the statute, which is fun to do because of the beautiful view over Lisbon. A ticket costs €5,-, but you can only pay in cash. The nearest atm is in the city centre of Almada, which is a bit of a walk. In the shop and restaurant also only cash. But,... More

Make time in your visit to Lisbon to go across the Tagus and visit Cristo Rei. It's fabulous and the views across the river are spectacular! Don't pay for an expensive tour as it's easy to get to via public transport. Initially I struggled to find the ticket office for the ferry but it was in the building called Terminal... More

We walked up to the statue from the boat, easily doable. You get good look at city of Lisbon as well as to the 25.4. bridge.

Great Jesus Christ monument in Lisbon, when you cross the bridge you can see it welcoming you on the other side.
