In the top of the City is installed Christ the redeemer the most wanted touristic sides of Brazil and Rio de Janeiro. Biggest and most famous scripture Art Deco of the world, the Christ statue started to be planned in 1921 and it was developed by the engineer Heitor da Silva Costa over 6 years of job, from 1925 to 1931, the opening year of the monument. Located at Parque Nacional da Tijuca, 710 meter above the sea level, where anybody can appreciate one of the most beautiful views of the city. Over all 220 steps that lead to the famous statue feet, it was elected one of the Seven Wonders of the World made by formal voting in 2007 by the Swiss Institution New 7 Wonders Foundation. The monument is accessible by train, van or car. To get into the monument, there’s a nice ride by train that, during 20 minutes, it crosses Mata Atlantica until Corcovado’s top.

BE CAREFUL with people selling van tickets who say that the ticket to the Christ is included!!! There’s a sneaky lady selling a “combo” for R$100,00 but you can get vans for 50R$! BE SUPER CAREFUL!

Went by myself to the train station that takes you up directly to the Christ the Redeemer statue.
At the bottom you can see a tv that shows the view from the statue. First day I went there was cloudy, so went a few days later when the skies looked clear.
Quite easy and simple to do without a tour operator, just use an uber to get to/from there

A must see! A bit crowded but if you plan ahead, you won't regret it. The view is fantastic. The train ride is great and you get to admire the lush vegetation

Perfect place to make a proposal dépité many people.come in morning to get sun on Christ face. Take lift after train and avoid stairs to go up. Better to use stairs when we go down

This is just a warning for this weekend 11/27-8, 2021. We tried to take an Uber and got about halfway up the mountain. At that point the road was closed and the guard informed us the park was closed today and tomorrow. Maybe this does not apply if you are on a tour or take the train - but we had no choice but to turn around. There is zero notice of this on the net - but the official website has been down all morning.

Took the 7:30 am train to the top, train is an average experience. View from top is amazing..worth the trip, completely recommend visitng since its worth the hype. At that time we beat the crowd by the very next train crowds had begun to pour in. Rio is afflicted with instagrammers, makes for wonderful people watching at any place in Rio
