Perched atop the San Pedro hill, the 33 m (109 ft) tall statue of the Cristo de la Concordia is the tallest of its kind in the world. Visitors can climb inside up to the arms for a panoramic view of the city.

The statue is just a bit taller than the one in Rio de Janeiro, with a great view of the city.

The construction of "El Cristo de la Concordia" took place in 1989. It is considered the main attraction in the city of Cochabamba. This massive work was carried out by the Catholic Church and contributions of diverse sources. The statue of Christ is an immense concrete structure that with his extended arms represents the hospitality of the people of Cochabamba. There is a superb view from the top, reachable by cable car service.

Walk Calle Colombia until its eastern end, then a swift right. This park and playground is where the cable car goes from. Don't try the stairs, it is dangerous!
