Corcovado Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro
Trip Planner: South America / Brazil / State of Rio de Janeiro / Rio de Janeiro / Corcovado Christ the Redeemer
An elegant 38-meter (125 ft) Art Deco statue constructed in 1931, Corcovado Christ the Redeemer was once only accessible by climbing hundreds of steep steps to the top of the Corcovado Mountain. Today, visitors can access this instantly recognizable city symbol by using the convenient escalators and elevators. The viewing platform from the top offers panoramic views of Copacabana, Ipanema, Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, Botanical Garden, and the Maracana Stadium. Check the weather before starting your climb to the top, as thick clouds often envelop the peak and obscure the view. You can also reach the top on the funicular train, but remember that the lines can get rather long here. Try to time your visit for lunchtime, when there are fewer crowds and considerably shorter lines.

Visual belo, carregado de emoção. visite subindo de trem que se pega na estação do Cosme Velho. Conhecido como a Tremalheira. Atravessa a floresta da Tijuca e te deixa dentro do Corcovado. mais seguro... more »Beautiful Visual, loaded with emotion. Visit climbing the train that takes you to Cosme Velho station. Known as the Tremalheira. It crosses the Tijuca forest and leaves you inside the Corcovado. Safer and cheaper than van or taxi.
The most amazing in RIO and the place like this and Sugarloaf it’s the stunning view! Rio has incredible stunning view and it’s the one if the best part which you should visit! All high place is must see, you can come here for sunset. There you can find cozy lounge cafe with the drinks. The service in that cafe not the best, but the place is really nice! Be prepared all staff speak just Portuguese.
It is little tricky to get there: we got at the route start at 11 but at to the Christ statue at 16 (30 min with a van, 3,5 hours of waiting, then 15 min by a van). The train was also to be waited for too long. But the service is good, you can eat and drink by fair prices. So, you'll need much patience! You will forget about all that when you get there, because the sight is amazing. Check the weather because sometimes it can be foggy. P.S we paid: 35 RS for vans (the first ones)and 29 for the ticket
