Photo of the Day: White Christ Overlooking Cusco Peru

| Taken by Jason | No Comments » | Photo of the Day

This photo was taken in Cusco, Peru high on the hillside overlooking the city from the ruins of Sacsayhuaman.   The Cristo Blanco (White Christ) stands 25 meters tall and was a gift from the Palestine Arabs to the people of Cusco.  At night the statue is lit and can be seen from the Plaza de Armas as a guardian of the historic city.
