Monumento ao Cristo Rei

With open arms 113 meters above the level of the river Tagus, the Monument to Christ the King offers a privileged view over the counties of Lisbon and Almada. And on sunny days, the look can still reach part of Sintra and Sesimbra. Inaugurated in 1959, it was inspired by the Christ Redeemer, located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The monument was built on the promise made by the Bishops of Portugal to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, hoping to keep the country from the horrors of World War II.
