Experience views of the surrounding green valley as you visit Cristo Redentor. The statue stands 28 m (91.9 ft) tall on top of a hill with its right arm raised as a sign of blessing. It is one of the major works of the sculptor, Juan Carlon Iramain (1900-1973), whose remains can be found resting underneath.

  • Work that summarizes and presents the Rio de Janeiro to the world ... Great, beautiful and unique. The natural beauty and stunning views of the entire city. It's also well organized the entire visit.

  • I arrived at the place to buy tickets, was with a 2 hour queue. If it was 2 hours was good, only coming to van was still the worst, most line up until the Christ. Conclusion leaves the hotel 11:30 and I got back from Christ the 16:00. Seeing the Christ really was about 15 minutes. The place is beautiful that I can't deny, only the lack of information about the exact waiting time has angered me. People who gave up upstairs to wait, because it had marked flight. The time that this on the ticket does not match the time you'll get in Christ. So if u wanna go, separate 5 hours a day for the ride.

  • Great view and the statue is amazing, but the commercialization has gotten a bit out of hand. Be aware that the private van service offered will only take you halfway, to get up to the statue itself you have to pay another 38 reais. Taking the train is advised, but you should reserve ahead of time as the wait can be long. I went during the olympics, things may be different the rest of the time.
  • Cool statue. Great views. Go up when it's clear skies or you won't see the city below. Bring cash with you. Some food places only take cash. They only had wifi at the top when we went and this caused us a lot of problems. For the Olympics, they said they would have wifi at the bottom too. Ticket sellers are very nice and usually speak English.
  • Very nice view over Rio. Tons of tourists(as expected) but we'll worth a visit. Imho best place to hike up there is the trail from parque lage. Make sure you buy your tickets in advance (not possible at the entrance), I had to hike up twice to get in :)
  • Well I knew of its beauty already and me and Jesus were always close. He was watching on the wall as Father McGinty touched me on multiple occasions. So it was nice to know he was watching over me and my husband and in our bedroom. I am a man who was once a curious boy
  • The hike up Corcovado is really quite beautiful, although it can be quite confusing to find the starting point. The dirt trail starts behind a church/monastery and winds up the forested hillside, cross over railroads, and other interesting features. You will see monkeys and all sorts of animals on the way up. A fantastic experience for those who are in shape. Just be sure to check the guide book on the start location - it's not quite the same as the usual tourist approach via cable car.
