This large white statue of Jesus Christ stands with arms outstretched above the city. Located on Pukamoqo Hill, said to be a spiritual Inca site, it measures 8 m (26 ft) tall. The statue was a gift from Arabic Palestinians who sought refuge in Cusco...More

Got up here as part of a bus tour. Great views across the city. You only need 10 minutes to take photos.

It's worth a trip up to get an overview of the city. Not as big as Brazil but still fun to see. Bring some cash to give to the locals who are there to sell gifts and pictures

The statue of Christ in Cusco is smaller the one in Rio (BR) and maybe the same size as the one in Taxco (MX). From there you can have a nice view of the city of Cusco and the mountains around it.

We entered from Sacsayhuaman entrance and it's just a small walk uphill to the statue. There's nothing too special up there besides the statue and it's an interesting look out point to see the city of Cusco. It was a nice free activity to do!

The christ itself is not a very good attraction. However, you have a nice view of the town, and can walk until the ruins nearby. We went there by uber (which canceled our trip and asked for extra money - 15 soles)

My G Adventures group stopped here on our day trip to a women's weaving co-op. While there wasn't much to do here, it was a beautiful view point overlooking the city of Cusco. Made me think of Brazil's Christ The Redeemer statue, but much smaller...More

An alternative vista point and a short walk from Sacsayhuaman is Christo Blanco, a massive statue of Christ, standing above in stark contrast to Sacsayhuaman, and overlooking the city.
