There are many points that make this attraction unnecessary, ugly and even dangerous. First of all the view from the cross is not that spectacular because not the view of Miraflores but the view from Miraflores is beautiful. I also do not see the point...More

This cross is most impressive when seen from a distance at night. The lighted cross was built out of electric pylons that had been disrupted during the riots during the 80s. It was built to commemorate the Pope's visit, and is a very beautiful sight....More

Chorrillos is not a safe area. I was robbed at gunpoint yesterday at the foot of this hill/mountain. Be very wary of your surroundings and DO NOT speak to strangers. Stick to Miraflores and you will be in safe hands. Trust me, because I am...More

Can see this at night high on the headland. no need to visit. enjoy the night viewing when on the board walk. Some times you drive past it on your group city tour. Saw it when part of a group tour.

Some bus tours visit the cross in daylight. It is on a rather bleak headland in Lima's far south. The view is spectacular. The cross is nothing more than an electricity pylon. It was installed for a visit by Pope John Paul II. Other important...More

We arrived close to midnight and very tired. I knew nothing about the lighted cross. It was so moving and absolutely breathtaking to see this amazing large cross glowing across the water, high on hill on a very clear night. It was very moving.

As others have mentioned, there is nothing to visit in particular. But where we are staying in Miraflores, this is the key feature to the coastal skyline every night. It's visible from anywhere you are in the area. You can see it in the daytime...More

You can see the cross from the boardwalk along Miraflores. When the sun goes down, it is a stunning view from the distance. A beautiful cultural tidbit from a Christian country.

This is just a nice lighted cross. Just another little decoration to the lighted city of Miraflores and Barronco. Nothing really to see or do. Just take a nice picture

We could see the lighted cross from anywhere in Miraflores or Barranco, it's a nice touch. Up close though, it's just that - a big lighted cross. Nothing to really go visit, but nice to have it there. It's set on a cliff in Chorrillos...More
