A towering statue of Jesus Christ (Cristo Redentor) perched atop the Corcovado Mountain is accessible by a steep train or winding car ride followed by numerous staircases, but it’s worth the trek to see this 98-foot statue up close and the whole of Rio below.

Go there, you´ll love it, hands down. And if possible, buy your tickets in advance through the web portal if planing to take the corcovado train. If you want to buy them the same day you plan to visit, you may experience a very very long queue.

I shall not recommend to go Corcovado with your car. Parking is almost impossible. Use local transportation facilities. Pls note that there is two level to go to top. Watch the whether condition. If whether is cloudy, tnere is no use to go..

We did this as part of the city tour. We went early and I think this is a good idea as speaking to people who went later encountered long queues. Our tickets were purchased in advance for us bu the guide. It's worth the visit and it felt quite surreal to actually be there. Definately worth a visit.

Lucky to have bought the ticket online and took the early morning ride still was crowded. I cannot imagine if trapped in the afternoon with the crowded in a hot sunny day! The view was maginifcant and worth the efforts though

The "Christ the redeemer" statue is a world famous tourist attraction located on the top of The corcovado mountain. It has become an icon for Rio de Janeiro and Brazil. It can get extremely crowded, better to go early morning, to avoid the rush.

It was a nice way to enjoy the wonderful landscape of the city. To avoid long queue, we booked tickets from the internet and printed them before departure.

Take one of the 7.30am tours where they collect you from the hotel (we booked with Viator and then confirmed locally 48 hours before to ensure all was good with the pick-up). If you suffer in the heat or have limited mobility, don't go in the afternoon in high season - you will be in line for hours with crowds... More
