Loved the place, best view of Lisbon from above. Worth the trip. I took the ferry from Cais Do Sodre across the Tage to Cacilhas, then turned left right after exiting the ferry, and walked along the river with lots of abandoned buildings. It gives an edge to the walk. towards the end of the street, there are 2 nice... More

What needs to be said. It cost €5 per person to take a lift to nearly the top. The view is awesome. The lines are sporadic, very minimal for us late on a Monday in January. If the air is clear, not cloudy, it's hard to beat. There are even chapels (at the top and bottom) for those that may... More

We took the bus from Marques de Pombal and walked from the bus stop. The statue is amazing, awe inspiring. The background music of the Portuguese Christmas carols just added to the atmosphere. So beautiful. And the views of Lisbon from the top....speechless! The chapel is also very peaceful and was a nice place to sit and say a prayer... More

Breathtaking view over Lisboa, load your Viva Viagem card for the full amount (it was 9,-euros when we were there) and then the bus from the port up to the monument. Being up there feels like having one foot on the Golden Gate bridge of San Francisco and Rio de Janeiro. Maybe take a taxi to drive on the bridge... More

You don't need to book a tour to do this. Using your loaded Viva Viagem card, take the 15 minute ferry to Calcinhas (ask staff at the ferry to make sure you enter the correct waiting area). No viewing deck on the ferry. On arrival, turn left towards the series of open bus stops and look for 101 and prepare... More

With a hangover it was a bit of an effort getting all the way to the top of the monument from Pombal Square, Metro, Ferry and Bus, but once you get there and get up in the elevator it is worth the view. There is a gift shop at the top too, although we didn't buy anything.

When in Lisbon a visit to see Cristo Rei (Christ the King) monument is a must! Not only is the monument spectacular from afar it's really impressive up close. The views of Lisbon, the 25 de Abril bridge and the Rio Tejo are awesome especially from above - the aerial views from the foot of Christ are just phenomenal. It... More

You see the monument for the first time from mainland Lisbon, think about the statue in Brazil and decide you wish to visit the Portuguese equivalent. If going by public transport, first take the ferry from the ferry port behind the Cais Sodré station. If you have a zapper version of the green travel card, you can use it on... More
