Founded by the Spanish in 1574, Cochabamba is a city of 600,000 people at a lofty height of 7,400 feet (2258m). More lively and progressive than most high-altitude Bolivian cities, Cochabamba is mainly visited for its fertile landscape and the powerful brew known as chicha cochabambina. But Cochabamba is also home to several notable religious sites, including a miraculous weeping statue of Christ, a Mormon temple and a colossal statue of Christ that stands taller than the more famous one in Brazil.

Cristo de la Concordia
Just a few centimeters higher than Christ the Redeemer in Rio, the Cristo de la Concordia in Cochabamba is believed to be the largest statue of Christ in the world.
Christ of the Tears
Since 1995, a small statue of Christ has wept bloody tears on Good Friday. A number of investigations have been carried out, and the phenomenon remains unexplained. You can even watch a video of the event.
