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.

  • Since subi was close, but with the weather sealed of clouds the vision was not 100%. So schedule to come up with the time wide open and prepare the machines and mobile phones to photograph!!!

  • The view is very beautiful, too bad it was raining a bit strong and I couldn't enjoy it any longer!!!

  • The Observatory is the most beautiful point of town to see it in 360 degrees. Beautiful. Is much better than the mirante do Corcovado (where is the statue of Jesus) because precisely, is your front. Disrupts the vision of those who look from there. Some here will comment on that is dangerous. In fact, as is the entire city. But most of the time there are cops. If not, try to see another day, but it's a hotspot. As for not having "facilities" as bar and coconut seller (?!?), in fact does not. So what? If you are a bar, a restaurant that the person is looking for, or need to get out of the House. Has every one around here ...

  • 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.
  • 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.
  • You can reach it by car or walking, but the best is the bike ride from Laranjeiras.
  • Best place in Rio to view all its historical landmarks. We witnessed many people rush in and out, take your time-relax and absorb the wonderful views or Christ statue, the airports, the city, Sugar Loaf and the many favelas. Beautiful views in each direction. We walked down to the city and then took a taxi-its a lovely walk downhill.
  • This is a better vantage point from which to click photos of Rio (including Pao de Acucar) than the outlook at Cristo Redentor. Arrive just before sunrise or sunset.

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.
