Mirante Dona Marta, Rio de Janeiro

4.7
Standing 362 m (1,188 ft) above Rio de Janeiro, Mirante Dona Marta is a lookout point offering a panoramic vista of some of the city's most iconic landmarks, from the sprawling high-rises and dazzling beaches of Downtown, to Sugarloaf Mountain and--towering above it all--Christ the Redeemer. If the view from the observation deck leaves you wanting more, you can embark upon a sightseeing flight from the adjacent helipad and the surrounding forest is home to much colorful wildlife, including giant lizards and monkeys. See Mirante Dona Marta and all Rio de Janeiro has to offer by arranging your trip with our Rio de Janeiro day trip app .

  • Great spot for a picture from here you can see Rio in 360 all the sites are there for you to see and it is a great spot a lot quieter than Christ the redeemer!  more »
  • Lovely views of the Corcovado and sugar loaf. Good for shooting. A pity that the day I went was with many clouds.

  • Must see to see Rio and the Christ without the 7 billion people just below the statue. We took an Uber asking to make a stop here at Dona Marta Belvedere before you drive us to the station where to get tickets for Christ and about 7 minutes by bus to get there. The view of Rio's spectacular and you'll also get a preview of Christ from closer than from the city. There are two points of view, one that looks toward the sugar loaf and the landing of helicopters that see the Christ. If you love pictures, here is the way to go. It is worth organizing for the stage.

  • It's a much better option than visiting the Christ. Better pictures, never crowded and it doesn't cost any cent!
  • Absolutely phenomenal views. We just happened to go by this place so I didn't have a nice camera but still managed to get great shots with my phone, especially in the panorama view. This is a great Panoramic Picture spot. There's a good size parking lot leading up to it and if you're lucky, you might see some monkeys as you walk up to the view point.
  • Amazing view! It is a must stop here
  • One of the most breathtaking views of the city. Must see view from above of Rio
  • One of the best vantage points over Rio de Janeiro. Had to wait "in line" to snap the best angle of Christ the Redeemer, but it was totally worth it.
