Mount Isabel de Torres

Mount Isabela de Torres, a mountain that would have perhaps been notable all on its own as it stands 2,600 feet above sea level, is made more attractive to tourists by the huge statue of Christ that stands on top.

At the top of the mountain you can do more than view the monument. There is also a small botanical garden, and of course the view of the island below.
