Yes, finally I get to meet Christ the Redeemer. Its a bit smaller that I imagine it would be but what a great feeling. Iconic, majestic and peaceful all in one. And I am not a Christian! Greetings and Blessing.

As one of the wonders of the world this is a must see. It is impressive enough when you catch a glimpse of it from street level but up close it is even more amazing. It is usually slammed with tourists but it´s worth that hassle. The views are also great.

Be careful when you go because if there's fog you won't ever see the statue standing right below it. Check the web cams online to see the visibility before you go.

The Christ the Redeemer is one of the most famous landmarks in the world. It was cool to see it in person however, I will say I thought it was bigger. We booked to a tour through our hotel which granted us access to the mountain top and we went real early. There was a lot of bugs up there... More

Very crowded, but some amazing views of the city from that location. The crowds are too big for that space.

Impressive worth the trip and views but if you only have one Sugarloaf or the Redeemer, Sugarloaf wins. lines, traffic, too many people, weather can be a problem.

One of the best places to meet in the world. The view and the place are amazing. Its not so easy to get there so be prepared to spend at least 2-3 hours to get there until you leave the place but its worth

Folks, this is not a religious statement but a comment meant to convey the wonder and awe this site evokes in most everyone who visits. It's not only about the huge statue of Christ the Redeemer that we have seen on TV, movies, and photos but also about the amazing, sweeping views that define for us the Rio of our... More
