Fodor's Expert Review El Cristo de la Concordia

Cochabamba Public Art

In Cochabamba, size matters, particularly when it comes to the gleaming white statue of Christ with open arms that stands watch on a hilltop overlooking the city. It is, you'll surely be reminded, currently the world's largest, and although this is debated elsewhere, it is definitely larger than The Statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro. Comparisons aside, it does make for a great spot to get a perspective on the city, which has a population of more than half a million.
