just another cablecar ride to the top, quite ordinary. There were shops at the top, you can spend an hour to walk around to take in the views & have something to eat, prices are reasonable.

Fabulous views over Rio. Get there early though. Great cable car ride. We did this as a combination trip with Redeemer & BBQ lunch through Amigo tours ! Worth ever penny. Paolo was our guide who made our trip amazing.

vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts
people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect

No - there was no construction when I was there 3 weeks ago. Everything is clean and well maintained at the top! A highlight of the trip!
