Stunning view

Great view, over the entire city, and the Christ Redemptor is a thing to see, but we found 73BRL/person to go up a bit pricey.

It's a must do thing while in rio to go up the narrow gauge railway to the top to get stunning 360% views. I've been up twice and both times it was fairly busy with tourists and locals aswell. Allow a few hours and you can also fit in sugerloaf in the same day.

It is a bit time-consuming, but one must check this landmark. It is very emblematic of the city. Although it seems to be frequently very crowded, the view makes it worthy!

Foggy morning, unable to see statue. The ride to the top was interesting. We basically hang around waiting for the fog to clear, but end up leaving without a clear view.

My heart got stuck upon looking up at it - the statue is so majestic and beautiful, despite of (or maybe due to) its simple design, and no picture I took seemed good enough as to do it justice. As for the view from up there - the best you can get in Rio, especially if you manage to arrive... More

This is a must see! Go early or be prepared for overcrowding and people intruding in your space while taking photos. The Christ has amazing views of Rio so try to go on a day that is not cloudy to get the best experience

we were astonished at the christ. it is so large and stands over 100feet high. it was built then covered with thousands of has mosaic triangular pieces. what a beautiful site to see. there are places you can lie down and take pictures that fit the complete christ into the screen. you can take steps or elavators to the top....

Aunque fui hace mas de 10 anios me gustaria decir que es un sitio turistico que no se puede perder, la vista de Rio es hermosa y el monumento impresionante. Although I went there more than 10 years ago, I remember it well and I would like to say it is a tourist attraction not to miss, the view of... More
