#2 of 179 in Things to do in Cali
Climb to the top of the Hill of Crystals to see Cristo Rey. The large statue of Jesus Christ stands 26 m (85 ft) tall and overlooks the village. Made of iron and concrete, the statue commemorates the 50-year anniversary of the end of the War of a Thousand Days, a Colombian civil war. Take it slow while scaling the hill so you can view the sculptures of Carlos Andrés Gómez, who has sculpted various works into the side of the hill.

  • Great view from both the city and the west mountain range. Enjoy a nice time of winds and awe as you stare out in to the second largest city in colombia. If you have a guide to tell you all about it better!
  • The easiest mean of transportation to get here is by taxi. There is no bus service. There are paying parking lots. The view is nice, and there is a guide to inform about the Cristo redentor.
