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.

Cristo Redentor On Corcovado, Rio De Janeiro Reviews
This is a must doin Rio of course. Services up there are good, you can easily spend a good 2 hours since they have like small restaurants to drink couple of beers and try some local food. Also you will be able to walk around and stop by in their gift shops for some memories. While going up and downhill I firmly recommend you use the train instead of any other medium. Adds to the overall experience.
One of the new seven wonders of the world, and didn’t disappoint me. The train journey up is good fun, I highly recommend that instead of the mini vans. Great views from the top, you can see the whole city. It’s hard to get a good photo of the statue itself, since there are always loads of other tourist trying to do so. Make sure you go on a clear day, or there is absolutely no view at all.
The statue is bigger than you think! Our group was dropped off at the top by their bus (trains were not working, but we went first thing in the morning). We lucked out and got a few good shots, but it was very cloudy which made it hard to see the surrounding landscape and the statue at times. There were marmosets (monkeys) hanging around near the cafe at the base of the statue! They are cute, but they are fast and like to steal things. You can see the statue from just about anywhere in Rio! I definitely recommend visiting this iconic place while in Brazil!
It was very crowded because it was a public holiday but it was still a great time. Such an iconic place for Rio and the view was unforgettable. Take the railway up and have a close look at the vegetation, nice and relaxing on a hot day
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..
