Overlooking the city of Cusco is the statue of Cristo Blanco (White Christ) - not unlike Rio's Christ the Redeemer. It was built by a group of Christian Palestinians who had sought refuge in Cusco and was their parting gift to the city when they left – also a symbol of their gratitude. The site provides spectacular views over the city. Worth the trip for the view.

There isn't much else to it besides the statue and the wonderful view of Cuzco. You can see the entire city. It was a site to see. You can see the statue from the city as well. At night it is has lights illuminating it. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way just to see it. If you are already in that area it is a nice little detour.

You could couple the visit to the statue of Christ while you are exploring sacsayhuaman since the statue is an extension to this complex and there is a trail that you could follow to reach up the hill. Once here, the view is to die for. Nothing will give you such a spectacular and splendid view of the entire stretch of the city. Getting to and coming back from this height needs you to be in a considerable shape. Do not expect much since the statue stands as a loner and does not have much to offer than the view

This was an amazing place to view the city as its at 3600 metres which is over 200 metres higher than Cusco. You could also see some of the ruins of Saqsaywawan which is one of the villages in the Sacred Valley.

We stopped at the Cristo Blanco statue to get a panoramic view of Cusco before starting our tour of the Sacred Valley. This is a great view of the city of Cusco.
