Nice Statue -- Awesome Views of Cusco
Oct 2019
Located on a hill overlooking Cusco is an attractive statue of Christ (Cristo Blanco), which is a mini version of Rio's Christ the Redeemer Statue. The main attraction, tho, is the view overlooking the Cusco valley -- nice views of Cusco Catedral and the Soccer Stadium. There is a tiny market of people selling clothing and crafts.

The statue is OK, but the the trip up here is for the view of Cusco
Feb 2020
We were lucky to have a tour bus take usn up the mountain ahd stop off here for a quick look a the city. This is a great viewing platform! The views of the city, historic area and the airport are great to get your bearings.

The statue is supposed to be a small version of the Brazil "Christ the Redeemer" statue in the harbor. It is not that good or that big!

This is a popular site--there are many vendors here! That is always a real clue as to how many people show up here!

Statue itself is fine, you are just going for the views of the city
Mar 2020
You're more going up to see the views of the city rather than the statue itself. The views were better than any other we had in Cusco and you can see a huge amount of the city and the mountains around it. It's free to enter and you don't need a tour. The walk up from the city is easy enough and takes around an hour.

Located a hour climb from the city center the statute of christ offers panaramic views of the historic city below. It's not as spectacular as christ the redeemer in rio but worth the trek if you want to a climates to the altitude before takling a longer hike on the inka trail. Also just next door is the Saqsaywaman Park. You can walk alongside the ruins for free and see a great view from the adjacent hill side.

Free attraction with great views of the historic district below
Sep 2019
This is a free attraction, but you have to get there somehow. It is possible to walk up from the historic district, but that is a long climb at the altitude of Cusco. Most of the city bus sightseeing tours include a stop there, but be sure to ask before you book one.

Cristo Blanco
Sep 2019
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 you're looking to make a double stop for the day.

On the top of an hill, nice view of Cusco
Oct 2019
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 Armas takes circa 20-25 minutes. Going uphill from Plaza de Armas is advisable only if someone is sufficiently fit.

Stands over the City
Oct 2019
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!!
