Cristo Blanco is a good acclimatization hike for anyone that is getting ready for a trek and it's a great view from the top.There are a couple of locals at the top that sell little souvenirs, and Cristo Blanco is fairly close to Saqsaywaman if...More

It is on the top of a hill and one can enjoy a nice view of Cusco from there. The statue in itself is mediocre. Nearby there is a historical site. Advisable to go by taxi. From there, a good walk downhill to Plaza de...More

Statue of Christ the Redeemer, Christo Blanco, reminiscent of the similar one in Rio de Janeiro. Standing 8 metres tall it is a good 30-minute walk uphill from the Plaza. Not for the fainth-hearted at this altitude!!

Walking up is fun and gives you a real feel for the city of Cusco. The view is great, overlooking everything. A great free activity

The statue it nice but the great view is of the city of Cusco. There will be some local people selling things here and that's about it.

When we went, my mom and I decided to take the stairs on the way up. The crawl (as I like to call it because I’m not athletic) left us completely breathless- both literally and metaphorically. The view of the city only got better with...More

I have seen several statues of Christ around the world, so I wanted to be sure to visit this one. The only thing I found disappointing was that you could not touch it. It is lovely. However, even better is the view down the mountain...More
