I was totally wrapped to visit this specular attraction. The views of Rio were amazing and Corcovado was impressively huge. We took the train up the mountain which was a pretty ride with nice views along the way. There were big crowds up the top as expected but still managed to get some good photos. It was an extremely hot... More

We took the railroad up the 2300 foot mountain instead of driving up. Certainly safer. We were lucky as there was little fog and you could see for 20+ miles. The statue, which can be seen all over Rio was amazing. The base around the statue was a bit crowded but it was a Sunday. I think this is the... More

Amazing experience seeing the size of the Cristo sculpture. It had a presence of its own and what is most amazing it looks untouched and so real. A sight for any tourist who admires a truly magnificent art form and icon of Rio.

If you are in Rio de Janeiro you have to go to visit the Cristo Redentor on top of the Corcovado. Besides of the Christ statue there is a small chapel and nice bars for a refreshment. If you go by "Trem do Corcovado" make sure you'll sit on the right for a better view!

Wow, what a sight and impressive Statue. The trip up to the Statue was so beautiful. The narrow curves that the van travel through add to the excitements of the trip. You do not realize how beautiful Rio is until you get to the Corcovado.

As we were coming up the mountain you see heavy fog/mist covering the mountaintop. We got to the top and the Christ statue was totally covered in fog, but then the light shined through it and the fog dissipated and the Christ statue was revealed. It was a pretty epic way to see the statue. Instagram: @tommiesox

The drive up the mountain to the statue was great. Scenery was wonderful.; There was a lot of fog the day we went but we were able to get great pictures in between the fog rolling in and out.

Amazing views across Rio from this high up. Worth the winding drive up the hill to then look down on Copacabana, La Blanc, etc.
