Think Christ the Redeemer but a shabby and very small one, without the view or the crowds and you got it. It's a walk to do if you have a spare moment in Creel. There are a few loose dogs running about that can be...More

Look for the red antennas and make your way up the hill from there. The view is worth the climb even if the city is not spectacular when compared to the canyon views you experience in this area.

It looks like the famous statue overlooking Rio De Janeiro in Brazil only smaller and without the view of the Atlantic Ocean. It is close to town, only a short15-20 minute walk and you can see a lot of what Creel is today.

Not a high priority attraction. A pleasant walk up the hill. Avoid coming down the short cut. Many stray dogs. Nice view of the village esp at sunset.

A short walk from the main square, very easy hike for all ages. Great view of Creel and the valley from the look out spot. Sat around up there with a lunch.
