By gondola lift directly into the arms of Christ
GD8 Torreon

High above the city of Torreón in Northern Mexico, the radiant white figure of Christ welcomes pilgrims and tourists with open arms. Each year, thousands of people come to this place of pilgrimage in the state of Coahuila. Until now, many visitors have gone up the de las Noas hill on foot to see the famous landmark, the church and the panorama restaurant. Since 2017, they can take a comfortable gondola lift directly from the historic center of the desert city to the 22 meter statue and enjoy the fabulous view there. The municipal administration of Torreón, at the edge of the Chihuahua desert also had a park and mountain bike route built, in addition to the ropeway, to make the area even more attractive to tourists.
