Cristo de Taxco (Lookout)

Taxco de Alarcón

One of the main attractions of the “Pueblo Mágico” (Magical Town) of Taxco, is only ten minutes away (by car) and is located in the Cerro del Atachi. It is the Christ of Taxco, in the highest section of this hill. The sculpture, inaugurated in 2002, with a height of 18 meters welcomes travelers with open arms.

Although the Christ by itself is imposing, the sculpture is a faithful guardian of Taxco, because at its feet there is a viewpoint where you will get a spectacular panoramic view of the mining town with its unmistakable white houses and reddish roofs, surrounded by vegetation and in the center, the beautiful Parroquia de Santa Prisca.

Once you have admired the natural beauty of this place, you will have no doubt why it is considered the best panoramic viewpoint in the region by both its inhabitants and visitors.

As a curious fact, two years ago the Christ lost a hand when he was struck by a lightning. Fortunately, the sculpture was completely restored and the works were used to further embellish the surroundings of the place.
