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.

  • One of the best views of Rio! It's a must go place in the city. Great place to go with family and friends and take great pictures with the statue and the city in the background. There's a beautiful skyline too, where you can see the Sugar Loaf and the many beaches Rio has. Absolutely amazing! But beware, don't go when the weather is not clear or you might see just clouds and fog everywhere you look from up there. The train ticket can be bought online and has some discounts for cariocas.

  • Really amazing views from the top and a chance to take some stunning photos of Rio. It is a RIDICULOUS price for the train however 75r per person, not bad if you're on holiday but quite a lot for a travelling budget. The top is FULL of tourist so you'll be fighting to get a good picture, but if you succeed, it will definitely be worth it. A decent tourist trap!

  • - Great views of the city! - Buy tickets online to gain priority boarding 👍 - Great ride on the train (sit on the right side for the better views) - Crowd control is fine. Many ppl but doesn't feel too crowded. - Two cafe options for a quick drink before coming down.

  • I've been here 3 times spread across ~15 years and access to the statue has changed a lot. Nowadays, access is more regulated than it used to be. That said, it's an amazing statue and gets 5 stars.

  • It is really cool to see Rio in 360°. Everything looked so small from up there. Especially nice if you have been to places in Rio already and you can see them from up there.
