Christ the Protector, Now the Tallest Christ Statue in Brazil!

Christ the Protector is now the highest Jesus statue in Brazil, located in the city of Encantado, which is 43 meters tall (141 ft) higher than the well-known Rio de Janeiro’s Christ the Redeemer. Similar to monuments in Indonesia (52.55m) and Poland (52.5m), makes it is the third highest in the world. The statue was officially completed in April 2022, but as the construction of the tourist complex is still ongoing, the opening for the public is planned for the first half of 2023.

The Christ the Protector statue’s construction began in June 2019. The idea of it belongs to the former mayor Adroaldo Conzatti. The statue design was developed by the sculptor Genesio Gomes Moura and his son Marcus Moura. During the construction process, the monument had already become popular, and more than 500 people could watch the works through guided tours offered on weekends.

Tourist Attraction

According to the plan, there will be stores, restaurants, a park, retail, souvenir shops, and several observation decks next to the Christ statue in Brazil. There is also an elevator that will take the visitors to the heart-shaped observation desk as the special feature of the Christ statue. People will be able to watch a superb view of the valley from a height of about 40 meters which can be filmed and photographed. For visitors, the destination is open every Saturday and Sunday until the unveiling is done early next year.
