We got up early, took the ferry from Cais do Sodré to Cacilhas, and then a bus to Cristo Rei. It was worth the price and the time to get there. The hardest part was the bus ride. Since it is not a Lisbon bus, you have to buy the ticket from the driver. Our driver on the way up... More

We visited the site yesterday and were completely amazed. Unfortunately the elevator is still under repair so we could get up to the highest viewing point. The elevator is supposed to reopen on 01 April 17. The views of Lisbon from the site are excellent and the suspension bridge is very impressive. Certainly worth a vist!

This is an easy trip from Lisbon. Catch the ferry from Cais de Sodre to Cacilhas (Euros 3.00 return), then the 101 bus to the Cristo Rei terminus (Euros 1.45 single - no return tickets). The area surrounding the statue looked well used and was in need of some TLC when we visited. Also, the lift from the ground to... More

Visited this place as part of the city tour. The statue of Jesus is huge. There are also crosses with interesting images. This place also offers a nice view of the bridge and Lisbon. Worth visiting.

Unfortunately it was foggy when we went and we couldn't see the statue clearly. Still beautiful none the less. We were still able to enjoy the surrounding.

My wife and I spent a few hours at Santuario Nacional de Cristo Rei during our long weekend stay in Lisbon in February 2017. We had hired a car ( I have driven in Portugal before about 14 years ago) and set off from our hotel (The Marriott Hotel) near Lisbon airport on a warm and sunny Sunday morning. The... More

We didn't even plan to visit the statue- we were just in the area because we got a ferry across the river to explore that side. After visiting a few different places we realised we were only a few km from the statue so we walked there. Only the last part was steep and if you are used to the... More

This place is so beautiful and peaceful. we spent nearly 3 hours there.You can also get beautiful views over Lisbon. .It is very easy to go there from anywhere in Lisbon. From Cais de sodre take a ferry which cost 3 euros return per person and when you reach the other side take a bus number 101 which takes you... More

Getting there choose the bus 753 and walk a bit (800 m), it is much easier than to change lines and transportation. When we were there the elevator didn't work so we could only enter the chapel and walk around. The view from the top is astonishing to the old town and river bank long until the ocean.

Well worth the trip from Cais de sodre- although had to buy a new ticket at the boat ticket desk as our metro one not work. Got taxi up to the monument only €6, however nothing to tell is beforehand that elevator being refurbished so closed until 1 April - can though still experience the views. 101 bus back down... More
