Cristo Redentor On Corcovado - Review

When you think of Brazil, Christ the redeemer is the first thing that comes to mind. The most identifiable structure in Brazil and South America for that matter, the enormous statue of Christ the Redeemer atop Corcovado Mountain is something of a national landmark.

The location attracts three hundred thousand tourists on an annual basis and this is just a small indication of the significance of this iconic landmark. The top of the mountain is a natural granite dome which presents the best views of the entire city. One can see the favelas, the beaches and a bird’s eye view of the city, but it is recommended that one chooses a sunny day to visit Corcovado. Cloud covering can easily dampen a typical Rio day and hence one should certainly not try and visit here when there is a cloud cover.

The third largest statue of Christ and the largest art deco structure in the world, this eight meter tall statue was erected between 1926 and 1931. Constructed out of soapstone and concrete, Cristo Redentor is a symbol of the Christian influence in Brazil.

Cristo Redentor On Corcovado, Rio De Janeiro Reviews

  • The most iconic and magnetic sites in Rio! The statue is huge with wonderful views of the whole city. The statue sits right on the line dividing the city into north and south side. To your right will be the south side with the beaches and racing, to your left is the north side with the maracana stadium. If you are lucky, you will be there when there is a prayer service going on. A different experience regardless of how religious you are! Make sure you go there early enough to beat the crowd. It could get quite busy.

  • Visited twice.. A great place.. First the marvellous Christ the Redeemer statue.. It has been wonderfully sculpted and no wonder it's termed an engineering marvel too... Access is by road taking the tour vans that could cost 62rials.. Or by tram that cost the same. Reaching the top there is the escalator provided for reaching the statue.. A birds eye view of Rio de Janeiro and Copacabana beach could be seen from here. Better visit in the late morning as there could be possibility of cloud cover... Watching the sunset is awesome from the place.. The tram service is every half n hour... And there are restaurants and souvenir shops at the place... Be careful while at the entrance to the tram station local tourist guides sometimes try to cheat.. Better take the tram.. My personal opinion.. Food stalls are expensive so just go for watching the wonderful statue and beautiful Rio de Janeiro from the top..

  • Wonderful views of the city from up here. A lot of the staff speak enough English to make it easy to get around. Getting to the top is tricky so make sure your taxi driver takes you as far as he can go (usually up to the official buses, that take you up to the actual statue). Don't get off early as the hill is ridiculously steep. Lovely souvenirs around here too.

  • Yes we chose one of those few days to go to see a wonder of the world and the dog had set in. We’d seen it from a distance, we’d seen it flying in, we’d seen it from the favela. Alas not when we got there. As I was with a group we had a bus up to the top where you buy the tickets and find the most amazing gift shop I think I’ve ever see . From there you then take a special van to another section. Kiosk is here. Then elevator and escalators take you to the top. The best we could see was an outline of the arms. There is a small chapel underneath the statue that you can also visit for free. Overall I found the experience worthwhile even though I could t see much of the statue or of he great view.

  • It was in 2011 when i visited this place knowing Christ as the Savior brings joy in my life especially during hardship. The place with the symbol of Christ means a lot of the Christians of Brazil. Visit the place and experience the feeling for yourself you wont regret. Christ the Redeemer is a statue in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil that was built as a symbol of Brazilian Christianity. In 1850, the idea of building a religious monument was first suggested by a Catholic Priest. It wasn't until 1920 when a group petitioned for support to build a landmark statue that it became a reality.
