If you are by Saksaywaman is worth waking a bit more uphill and see this beautiful religious site, specially for the view of Cusco.

Nice statue, but the big fence around it spoils the whole thing... Still a pretty good view over the city though!

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.

I wouldn't travel all the way to Cusco, Peru to see this statue. I wouldn't go more than 3 minutes out of my way to get a close photo of it. But if you're already going to Sacsayhuaman, you'll only have to walk an extra...More

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.

This white statue of Christ sits up on a hill high above Cusco. You can see it from the Plaza Armas or at any other points in the city. It is almost like a guardian. We stopped at the site on our drive into Cusco...More

Known in Cusco as Cristi Blanco, this statue sits high above the city square and is visible for miles. Although not very large the white against the natural landscape makes for a beautiful site. We took a taxi, which cost about 15 sols and was...More

A truly special place to go. Sacred, humbling and touching. You have to go to feel it. It’s about 20 mins walk up hill from the city center square/historic town. Saqsayhuaman is in the same area. The view is fantastic too!
