The "Cristo del Otero" is one of the highest crist-scultures on the world. You must visit it. It has also a small museum you can visit it for free.

We didn't know about the Cristo until our hotel front staff told us about it. We were like we gotta go! It's similar to Redemptor in Brazil. The moment we arrived there, the sound of looking at it were so loud that we were speechless....More

Having been to Rio De Janerio this statue fails to live up to its Brazilian counterpart. However this statue stands proudly over looking the town and is well worth seeing.

Situated at the edge of the town on one of the two hill at the 'entrance' it's quite a massive construction. I don't know exactly what I was expecting, but I was not very impressed. I'm far from being an art critic though I appreciate...More
