My companion pointed upwards. “That’s where we’re headed,” she said as we headed north over the suspension bridge and gazed at the statue of Jesus Christ, perched high on the hill.
Sometime or other while you were deciding on San Juan del Sur you will probably have seen a photo of this colossal statue silhouetted against the sky.
Erected in 2009, it’s quickly become an iconic landmark and geographical reference point for the town. At 24 meters (77.8 feet), it’s one of the 10 largest Jesus statues in the world.
We followed the road into La Talanguera, in search of the stone steps.
