One cannot leave Rio De Janeiro without visiting the statue of Christ the Redeemer. This 30 m high statue looks down on the city above the clouds of the Corcovado hill.

You can get there either by foot or by the the Corcovado train - this was the train that also carried the pieces of the present statue up to the hill for more than four years.

You may have seen the statue on pictures, but no photo can be compared to the feeling when you look up on it from the feet of it. It's gratitude is also somehow religiously moving.

Address:
Rio de Janeiro - RJ, Brazil

Price:
R$36 for a roundtrip with train.

Opening Hours:
Every day from 8:30 to 19:00.
