Nallely Sansores

The Christ of Copoya or the Christ of Mactumatza Hill is one of the representative contemporary sculptures of the region. 

TOWARDS THE VIEW

Enjoy the view of the Glorious Christ from every point of view. Climb to Mactumatza Hill and feel in close contact with the nature surrounding you. Enjoy the panoramic views that will take different perspectives during your ascent. 

BE SURPRISED BY THE HEIGHTS

Reach the esplanade where the monumental steel and aluminum structure measuring sixty meters tall and designed by the Mexican Jaime Latapí is supported. See the carved silhouette of the Christ wrapped up within the cross and be struck by the strength of the architectural composition, built to overcome earthquakes and hard winds. Take time to meditate, pray and rest next to the breathtaking landscape prostrated at your feet with other faithful followers who every day climb the hill to find a quiet space and direct their eyes to God. 

THE POPE FRANCISCO

Know the motif of the words stated by Pope Francisco to bless this sculpture during his visit to Chiapas. Ask the local guides why the Pontiff has a replica of the modern Christ in Rome. Visit the on-site stores and buy your own reproduction to take home. 

AT NIGHT

At night, enjoy the environmental low-impact lighting projecting a spectacular silhouette.
