Christ the Redeemer of the Andes is a monument high in the Andes at 3,832 metres (12,572 feet) above mean sea level on the border between Argentina and Chile.

It was unveiled on 13 March 1904 as a celebration of the peaceful resolution of the border dispute between the two countries.

The statue is located at the pass of La Cumbre, the highest point on the old road between Mendoza in Argentina and Santiago de Chile.

The nearest major settlements are the Argentine town of Uspallata and Juncal in Chile. The closest village is Las Cuevas.

The road climbs 1km over a sinuous 9km from Las Cuevas to the pass. The road is only accessible in summer months, when there is no snow. Winter temperatures can reach -30°C.

Address: las cuevas
Directions: Next to "Las cuevas" village
