Cristo de las Noas

Cristo de las Noas


Torreón, Mexico (MX)
The gigantic statue measures 71.5 ft (21.80 meters) from its base, and is made of over 580 tons of reinforced concrete; it is the most significant symbol not only of Torreón, but of all the Comarca Lagunera region. The project was conceived in 1973 by José Rodriguez Tenorio, and is the third biggest Christ statue in Latin America, only smaller than the statue of Christ The Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and Cristo de la Concordia in Cochabamba, Bolivia.
