Trip Planner: South America / Bolivia / Cochabamba Department / Cochabamba / El Cristo de la Concordia
Dominating San Pedro Hill, El Cristo de la Concordia represents the largest statue of Christ in the world--surpassing its more famous counterpart in Rio by a few centimeters. Outstretching its arms in a welcoming embrace, the steel and cement statue was supposed to be 33 m (108 ft) tall (matching Christ's age at the time of his death) but the few centimeters were added to reflect that Christ actually lived a bit longer than 33 years. Ride a cable car or climb the 1,250 steps from the base of the mountain to the top and you'll be rewarded with the views of the valley and the highest mountain peaks. On Sunday, you can climb to the top of the statue for even better vistas. Note that theft has been reported along the footpath. Bring your own water and snacks.

There is a cable car to get in and out of the place. The ticket price is 6.5 Bolivians for each leg (about 1 dollar). There are also stairs but they are not recommended for possible assaults along the way which is somewhat long.
Vale muito a visita ao Cristo de La Concordia! O teleférico é muito organizado e limpo. Não enfrentamos quase nenhuma fila. Lá em cima a vista é incrível, podendo-se enxergar toda a cidade e os morros... more »It is worth a visit to the Christ of La Concordia! The cable car is very organized and clean. We don't face almost any line. Up there the view is amazing, you can see the whole city and the snowy hills that surround it. It is in construction, to better shelter the tourists.
Beautiful sight, nice place to go with friends, family or partner. The road to get there isn't very car friendly (small cars).
Nice spot with an awesome view over Cochabamba. Also the restaurant is quite well equipped and offers hot meals. The cable car is a bit old fashioned and the cars don't travel continuously, so the wait can be long due to having Limited nhr of people Transported to each direction at a time
