  • the vans leading to the Christ Statue make a pause of about 20 minutes in the middle of the path, which is precisely this viewpoint. There is a helipad and there are people selling hang-gliding rides etc. It's not very awesome, but I can't help it get there.. RS

  • 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.
  • Free place to have a amazing view of a big part of the city. Must do if you can go with somebody.
  • The secret to this place is to come here if the weather is too cloudy for you to get the amazing views at the Christ statue. The elevation is lower (so typically under the clouds) but still high enough to get the picture perfect scenery.
  • Melhor vista da cidade.
  • Its free and had a wonderfull view!
