ALAMINOS- Jesus Christ’s statue is currently constructed in one of the islands of Hundred Islands National Park known as “Pilgrimage Island’ here. The statue is now 85% complete.
According to Tourism Officer Miguel Sison, the statue is 56 feet in height, taller than the the Jesus Christ, The Redeemer in Brazil, which is only 50 feet.
“Aside from Christ’s statue, soon to be constructed in the same site are the images of the stations of the Cross, a chapel and a retreat house that are expected to be completed before the Holy Week,” Sison said.
The Pilgrimage Island is one of the major projects of the city under Mayor Arthur Celeste for the year 2017.
It will be the 13th islands for tourist destinations at the Hundred Island National Park, aside from the three other big islands- Governor’s Island, Quezon Island and Clave Island.

    Correction. The Brazil statue of Christ the redeemer is 124 feet, not 50 feet.
