Mt. Cristo Rey

Sunland Park, NM
(915) 534-0600

On the west side off McNutt Road in Sunland Park, N.M. Atop an 800-foot peak stands a magnificent 29-foot statue of Christ by internationally acclaimed Spanish sculptor Urbici Soler, the site of an annual pilgrimage on Easter Sunday. Because of Mt. Cristo Rey’s location, it’s best to hike up the mountain in a group.
