Christ Redeemer Monument
The Christ Redeemer monument is a piece of art made by Argentine sculptor Mateo Alonso. It was erected in the passage of Uspallata, along the Argentine - Chilean border, at 3854 meters above sea level. Opened March 13, 1904, it served to commemorate the peaceful resolution of a conflict by questions of borders that brought the two countries to the brink of a war.
