Create an itinerary including Cristo de los Faroles
A stone cross inspired by Friar Diego José de Cádiz, Cristo de los Faroles is located in Córdoba's most attractive square. The monument is protected by a small fence surrounded by lanterns, which earned it the nickname of "Christ of the Lanterns." When the lanterns are lit the shadow of the cross casts an ephemeral outline on the buildings that backdrop it.

  • It is just a statue of Christ on the cross in a small square. Nothing else to see here. A photo opportunity for some, but I didn't bother.

  • Nice visit. But not much to do
  • You must visit this only one Jesucrist crucified. It's very original.
