I have been to this place more than 5 times and I´m never tired of viewing and taking pictures from here. It´s a must see for every tourist visiting Rio de Janeiro/Brazil.

Having been seeing the statue on telly, we were quite disappointed when we saw the statue up on the hills. It was smaller than what we envisioned and the place is soooo overcrowded, you can hardly get a spot to take a good pic. When we went, the statue was shrouded by clouds, hence we didn't really get a good... More

We were told, despite all of the travel books saying otherwise, that the best way to see Christ is by trekking up. How rightly we were told. The trek itself was by no means easy but it was so worth the view at the top and knowing you didn't pay a fortune and waste two hours of your life standing... More

Everyone and their mama want to see Cristo Redentor! I stayed at a lovely b&b just up the hill from the Corcovado Tram and really did not think there would be so many people in line for the train in the morning (around 11 am) on a fairly gloomy day..however, it was a Saturday. I waited in line for 30-45... More

Don't go up the mountain without checking the weather. You can actually see the statue from numerous places around the city, so getting a visual confirmation that "Christ is Clear" is the best way to avoid disappointment. Getting there early is the key for avoiding the crowds. The train takes longer and requires advance booking to get an early time,... More

While it might seem worthwhile to invest time and effort in journeying to the statue itself - which is undeniably impressive, as is the view - the real impact remains from below and from a distance. The true presence and power of Cristo Redentor resides in its relationship with the city of Rio de Janerio; so that as you look... More

We got there at 09.00 in the morning on a Monday and got the 09.20 train up to the statue. By the time we arrived it was busy. However 30 minutes later it was rammed!.... By the time we got down around 11am there were massive queues to buy tickets and get the train.... So my advise is, the earlier... More

I think how and why they constructed this statue is amazing. There is a plaque with a timeline showing the making of Cristo Redentor and who was involved. Inside the statue is a small chapel where you can pause and pray or just reflect if you are not religious. The views of Rio from this site is breathtaking and beautiful.... More
