Monument to Christ
Christ opens His arms to the city

Monument to Christ Built in 1959 in thanks to God for having spared Portugal during WWII, this enormous monument to Christ was inspired by the famous statue in Rio de Janeiro.

The 28m (90ft) figure of Christ opens its arms to Lisbon, and there is a sweeping view of the city and 25 de Abril Bridge from the top of the 82m (270ft) high pedestal (reached by an elevator).

To reach it take the commuter ferry from Cais do Sodre Station across the river to Cacilhas, from where there are buses (number 101) outside the station that stop right by the monument.

The inexpensive ferry crossing is an experience in itself, as it is a great way to admire Lisbon's setting and skyline (have your camera ready). Ride Lisbon's metro, buses, and trams for FREE with the Lisboa Card.
