  • Beautiful views of Lisbon and the Tagus river from here. You can go up to the top of the statue for a bird's eye view as well but we did not as the views from ground level were sufficient. Quite...

  • Very friendly staff that appear to speak all languages but leave you to it to explore. Very good view and nice area to walk around. Just a little out of the way but a worth while trip.

  • Wonderful views. Amazing sunset experience. Only 6€ to get the lift to the top (Christ King). The gift shop had great range of things even tho prices were a bit hefty.. they were nice. Was all worth it.
  • One of the best views of Tagus river, overlooking the bridge! Highly recommended. If you want to go up the statue have some cash ready because most times they don't accept bank cards.
