Must see · Monument · Tourist Spot
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.
