Cristo de las Noas

Torreón

Coronado el Cerro de las Noas (a cactus that grows in that area) can be seen in the distance the symbol and guardian of Torreón: a white Christ with his arms outstretched, staring at the horizon, strategically placed so that it looks like he is blessing the Comarca Lagunera, as the region is also known.

Don't envy the privileged view that this one has and better go up to him. There is a cable car whose station is in Calle Treviño and runs 425 metres (1,400 feet) to take you directly to the sanctuary of Cristo Rey (Christ the King).

Enjoy the unbeatable panoramic view of Torreón by taking all the photos you want. Let yourself be impressed by this sculpture created by the artist from Saltillo, Vladimir Alvarado, at the request of the then father José Rodríguez Tenorio, who began its construction in 1973. It is the third largest Christ redeemer in Latin America, only behind the sculptures from Brazil and Bolivia. It is 21 meters high and weighs 580 tons.

But Rodriguez Tenorio's vision did not stop there, since years later he ordered the creation of the 70,000 square meter (753,000 square feet) complex that accompanies the Christ, which included the construction of a chapel, a replica of the New Jerusalem, a Convention Center and the cable car, becoming to date the most important religious tourist complex in the country.

Don't forget to visit the medieval style chapels similar to those in the Holy Land, as well as the representation of “La cueva de Belén” and “El Calvario”, the place where Jesus Christ died according to the Catholic religion.
