A rather rickety cog-wheel train pulls you slowly to the mountain top where you ride both elevators and escalators before finally arriving at the mountain top. Once there, point your camera in any direction and begin snapping pictures because the pictures are bound to be impressive to anyone seeing them for the first time and listening to your story. We...

After seeing this in pictures for so many years, you wonder how it's going to be when you get there...and I'm glad this didn't disappoint. Absolutely stunning views all around! As an iconic symbol of Rio, I would feel wrong if I came here and didn't visit. The line was pretty long when I got there but moved faster than... More

For those that plan to visit Corcovado, here´s a tip. There is a van that leaves from Copacabana beach (beside Copacabana Palace Hotel) at Praça do Lido. You pay R$ 52 which includes transportation up to Corcovado and the entry ticket. Since the entry is normally R$ 36 and you have pay a taxi or other form of transportation to... More

It's one of the most known simbols of Brazil. With a astonishing view. I recommend going up to the mountain by the small train that climbs the rain forrest.

Pictures cannot really express how much of a beauty this place is. Not only is the actual statue imposing and massive but the view!! Oh the view is just phenomenal.

The effect that the Christ has when you see it from below is AMAZING! Great view of the city! A bit crowded to take pictures with the Christ but definitively the best experience in Rio!

I have been up here 3 times over the years. Yes it can get busy but it is a special place with amazing views. This last time we went up 1 hour before closing and 30 mins before it closed it was pretty much empty. We enjoyed a beer in the restaurant and casually took in the stunning views. Just... More

Don't do a tourist tour - just get a cab to Corcorvado train station, and get the tram through the interesting rain forest to the top - we were on an organised tour - which was awful as the day we went it was cloudy & obviously we would have chosen a clear day. There is something magical about the... More

As so many people already mentioned it is a MUST see in Rio. You will not believe what you are seeing, and once looking back to the pictures it will all feel like a dream. Ive been to Rio twice and on both occasions went up to see Christ the Redeemer, and it had the same effect on me as... More

A fantastic attraction. Get there early to avoid the crowds. You can walk up or get a train or a mini bus. Walking saves money but I didn't fancy the 600m climb in the heat. We got the train up and it was well worth it, good views through the forest, we even saw some monkeys in the trees.
