“Best view of Rio”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2014 via mobile

Simply the best view of Rio de Janeiro. If you want to take the best pictures that's the place. It's also a romantic moment. Day or night.

“This is the place to see Rio - I guess here is where they make postcards”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 16, 2014

I have been visiting Rio for business for years, but only on my last trip I visited this place. What a view! The view the whole world sees on postcards and etc... are definitely all taken from there. We took a helicopter ride from there. Totally worth the money, some amazing memories. One should really do that from Dona Marta, of course during the day.

“Great view”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 19, 2013

There are many places to see Rio from above - such as the stunning Vista Chinesa, and the popular attraction - the Corcovado and the Sugar Loaf. Dona Marta is closer to the town, so you get a close-up view of the most attractive area of the Wonder City. You will need to drive or take a taxi.

When going to Christ the redeemer, have a stop at mirante dona marta and enjoy the view. Watch out for micos, a kind o monkey that lives in the area.
