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.

  • 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.

  • A great place to get some views of the city without the crowds. Walk to the left side of the car park if you go up by yourself, and not with a guide, as this side has the best view of Christ the redeemer. Free as well! You can walk back down to the bus stop no problem, but we got an Uber going up. The 007 took us to Santa Teresa after.
  • This is a little secret in Rio, if you don't want to go to the the symbol of Rio savior Christ statute up close this is your best bet. Not crowded a good view of the city and the statue, if you don't have time and hate the crowds this is the best point to see the city.
  • This place was beautiful and way less people than the christ or pedra do telegrafo. So if you want some of the best views with little to no people, go here! This place had less trash than any other look out we went to. It was beautiful, and you can pretty much drive right up to it! View was great, people were great. Don’t get over charged by the locals.
  • This was an amzing place. High ground gave you the best view of Rio and all the beaches. Make sure you check the weather for that day to avoid a cloudy day.
  • Amazing view! ! But there's no facilities! ! There's no easy access! !
