  • We had a tour guide on our first day in Havana and this is where he took us at the start -the statue (marble, 60 feet tall) is impressive enough, but it’s more useful for the purposes of orientation.....  more »

  • what a really beautiful statue this is we were on a cruise holiday and one of our calls was into Cuba when I first saw the Christ of Havana I don't think I could have put into words how I was feeling looking up and seeing this . the view we got from the ship looking out over the water and then looking up the hill side up to this really beautiful thing I could have just sat for hours looking up at it .
  • A wonderful sight to see, with an amazing view. No charge to visit! Everyone should to stop here and visit.
