“It just looks a bit pathetic...”
Reviewed February 7, 2013 via mobile

A replica of Rio's 'Christ the Redeemer' but is nothing in comparison. Very feeble against the backdrop of a great coastline, lit up in neon... A poor choice. Also overshadowed by the giant cross further along the coast. Built in what is basically wasteland, unless the area is built up around the statue I think it's relatively pointless as a monument.

“Just the wrong light makes the statue ugly to see..”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

The statue is illuminated by night time with color changing neon lights. As a result, in seam everything less the Holy Christ..

“Statue”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

A nice view, but a common attraction in Lima. Some history behind it and how it was financed.

“Las Vegas or Lima?”
Reviewed July 1, 2012

Christ meets Las Vegas, in plastic and neon. I don't understand why anyone would ruin the landscape with such trash...

“terrible location for a statue. Nothing around, nothing to see. A waste of money”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

The former president personally financed the worst location for what could have been a beautiful addition to Lima's coastline.
