Cristo Rei

Recommended
The giant statue of Christ the King, a slightly smaller replica of the statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, was erected in 1959 in thanks to God for sparing Portugal during the Second World War. From the pedestal supporting the 28m statue (access by lift, then 74 steps), which is 85m from the ground and 113m above the Tagus, the panoramic view is magnificent, encompassing the estuary, the old quarters of Lisbon and the plain to the south, as far as Setúbal.
