NIce spot

The statue is located on top of a hill, it is a nice quiet spot, we spotted a few locals and alpacas roaming about. It is good spot to see the entire Cusco valley.

Cristo Blanco overlooks the city of Cusco. Excellent view of the city. Lots of opportunities to buy souvenirs. Doesn't take long to visit. Easy walk from the parking lot.

This was just an okay spot to see. Since it is not that old it was not that interesting. There were tons of locals there when we went and lots o families flying kites

I walked up early to avoid the crowds. It is well worth the effort. The climb is not difficult, but the statue is very impressive and the view of Cusco is beautiful.

Not worth up a separate hike, but easy to do when visiting Saksaywaman. The statue is not that imposing, and near a main bus stop for touring buses.

A smaller version of the statue of Christ in Rio de Janiero. Very cool to see. Scenic views abound here.

After exploring the Sacsayhuaman site, we walked to the White Cristo nearby. From the statue, the view of the city of Cusco below is unsurpassed! Definitely worth visiting both these sites.

A nice addition to a visit to sacsayhuaman ruins but by no means essential. Its just another statue of Jesus in South America and one that is quite underwhelming in terms of stature. The views from here and the surrounding area are lovely as they look over Cusco city (which is just a 30 min walk away). To be honest... More

On the very top of the hills above Cusco we found this enormous statue of Christ looking down into the Valley. We visited the statue during our tour of Sacsayhuaman
