A short stop at the monument on the way to Paracas. It is a good location to view this nice statue as well as a clear view of Lima. Enjoyed the view and learned something about the war between Peru and Chile.

A replica of Rio's 'Christ the Redeemer' but is nothing in comparison. Very feeble against the backdrop of a great coastline, lit up in neon... A poor choice. Also overshadowed by the giant cross further along the coast. Built in what is basically wasteland, unless...More

The statue is illuminated by night time with color changing neon lights. As a result, in seam everything less the Holy Christ..

A nice view, but a common attraction in Lima. Some history behind it and how it was financed.

Christ meets Las Vegas, in plastic and neon. I don't understand why anyone would ruin the landscape with such trash...
