From a grateful Portugal cr
The statue of Christ was built in 1949-1959 years. and opened May 17, 1959. Creating the statues has been endorsed by the Portuguese Episcopal Conference, held in Fatima, 20 April 1940, as a request to God to save Portugal from the entrance into the Second World War. It was built by public donations, mostly money women. Portugal did not participate in the Second World War, so women donated money to the statue of Christ, as he saved from the death of their sons, husbands and fathers did not prevent the participation of Portugal in the hostilities.
