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.

  • I had never been, until, for having the wrong way, I ended up there by accident. Stunning views, beautiful, amazing! My God, as the river is beautiful! Only God even to present us with a city like this. Take cell phone well loaded, because the photos look amazing! Loved it!

  • There's no sight as beautiful as the Christ, but on overcast days as I was, the deal is worth because it allows visual better since the clouds were higher. And the good thing is that it's less crowded.

  • 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.

Where to stay in Rio de Janeiro

Accommodations in Rio de Janeiro cover as diverse a spectrum as the city itself. At the top end, you can find plenty of luxury hotels along the beaches of Zona Sul, the city's southern zone, which includes the renowned Copacabana and Ipanema beaches. For something to suit a budget, but with good beach access, look around the less crowded neighborhoods of Catele and Flamengo. If you want to stay as centrally as possible, without feeling like you're in a business district, look for lodgings in the colorful, bohemian neighborhood of Santa Teresa.
