“Nice views, good active excursion, easy to get to”
Reviewed March 28, 2013

Liked that there was a path leading from the historic centre (even from the beach) pretty much to the top with only a small section of road at the end before returning to the path. A nice 1 to 1.5 hr active walk with rewarding views all the way up and at the top a nice church to visit.

Disliked the shop at the top was shut mid-day (per tradition in this area) and no toilets on the way up or at the top.

“Quite a walk”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

Yes we walked up very doable if you like walking but take water. Great view from the top of course didn't try food or buy anything but tacky tourist side easily avoidable peeked in the church form outside as shorts didn't seem appropriate attire .

“Impressive statue, gorgeous setting”
Reviewed October 15, 2012

Worth a trip if ony to experience the crazy engineering of the windy road to get to the top of this mountain! Great view, and the statue is impressive, approaching from the church. Sad to see that people are disrespectful both to the sculptor and the subject and graffiti the work of art....worth a visit at sunset but i imagine the light is even better at sunrise...

“did this hike everyday!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

We did this hike everyday that we were in Maratea around 5:30 PM. It took us about 45 minutes to get there and had a beautiful view the whole way up and an even better view at the top. We would watch the sunset at the top and then hike back down while it was still light out. Would highly recommend.

“Worth the while”
Reviewed August 1, 2012

There is a bus that takes you to Christ the redeemer statue. Amazing view over the coastline. And possible to get a cold drink while you enjoy it.
