ALMADA – Santuario De Cristo Rei – Close up

With open arms 133 meters above the level of the Tagus River, the Sanctuary of Cristo Rei offers a privileged view over the municipalities of Lisbon and Almada. And, on sunny days, the gaze can even reach part of Sintra and Sesimbra. Opened in 1959, it was inspired by Christ the 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, in the hope of keeping the country away from the horrors of the Second World War.
