“Great view of Cusco”
Reviewed 26 May 2014 via mobile

We stopped at the statue on a small detour to the airport and so glad we did.. Has an awesome view across the while of Cusco. Th statue itself isn't much to look at as it's all fenced off but definitely go for the view and cheap souvenirs from the locals. Plus it's free :)

“Good view of Cusco”
Reviewed 27 January 2014

A pity about all the fencing around the Cristo Blanco statue, making it difficult to get a decent photo of it. However there is a very good view of Cusco from here. It is adjacent to the Inca site of Saqsaywaman, so we visited the statue at the same time.

“White Christ Statue Looking over Cusco!!”
Reviewed 30 December 2013

This is an amazing site overlooking Cusco. The statue is lit at night and seen from most of Cusco. To approach the statue, you have to go near the Saqsayhuaman ruins.

“Lovely view of the city”
Reviewed 20 December 2013

Cristo Blanco (of White Christ) is located on a hill, which provides a spectacular and panoramic view to the city.

The Statue was a gift from the Christian Palestinians who were seeking refuge in Cuzco in 1945. It was a symbol of their gratitude toward the city, and was their parting gift when they finally returned to their home country. Since then, the statue has served as a reminder to the people of Cuzco that good deeds do not go unnoticed.

The statue is illuminated in the night, so can be seen from Cuzco.
