- Christ the RedeemerFeb 18, 2014
The open-armed saviour (known as Cristo Redentor in these parts) is probably Rio's most recognized symbol. From his perch atop 710-meter-high Corcovado, you'll have jaw-dropping views over the city, taking in its skyscrapers, jungle-clad hillsides and picturesque beaches. But the view is only half the fun — getting to the top is also a memorable part of the experience. The classic way up is by narrow-gauge cog train, which makes the 30-minute ascent through thick, steeply sided forest. Go early to beat the crowds.

The best panoramic view of Rio is definitely from the Cristo. You can see all the major landmarks and beaches and if you were in doubt of why Rio is called the wonderful city you won't have any questions after coming here. The statue of the Christ is also an amazing work of art itself. Get real close and see the tiny pieces of limestone that it's made of. The best way to get there is by taking the train and you can buy your tickets online beforehand to avoid the huge lines.

Christ the Redeemer fulfills the hype. Set at the top of Corcovado Mountain, the statute is the iconic landmark of Brazil. The view of Rio from the top is absolutely amazing. If possible, try your best to go when the weather is sunny so you can get an awesome view of the city.Recommended for:Art & Design Lovers

The views are absolutely incredible here. It is a phenomenol structure and quite an experience getting to the top. Once you've made so much effort you really don't want to leave so soon - just make sure you have water. On arranging travel and there is a small group of you, make sure that you look at taxi prices, this can work out cheaper than buses and trams etc.

Christ the Redeemer overlooks all of Rio, giving you the best views. Take the train to the top of the mountain and bring some change to give the band that hops on the train. There are restaurants and gift shops at the top.

Traveling to the top of the Corcorvado and seeing for the first time the Christ the Redeemer statue was one of the most exciting days of my life. Nothing really prepares you for the beauty and majesty of this wonderful site.
