This full-day tour of Rio de Janeiro with convenient hotel pickup is a popular choice for visitors with limited time in the area. Going with a guide means you hit all the city’s highlights without the stress of navigating and hear important context about landmarks along the route, including the Christ the Redeemer statue, Sugarloaf Mountain, and the Selarón Steps. Round out the tour with a well-deserved Brazilian-style lunch.

If you are walking by you can take a picture but it is not worth going there for the statue. We happened by.

This Statue is located in the middle of the historic Praca XV de Novembro and was erected around 1894 in honour of General Manuel Osorio, an esteemed Brazilian military leader and hero of the War of the Triple Alliance between, on the one side, Brazil, Uruguay and Argentina and, on the other, Paraguay. The War lasted from 1864 to 1870. The Statue was cast in bronze in France. The bronze reliefs on the plinth depicting scenes of battles were cast from bronze melted down from canons captured in the war against Paraguary. Overall the Statue and the surrounding square could do with a lot of TLC. At one stage the General's remains were interred in a crypt under the Statue but they have since been relocated to a vault built in a town near were he was born.
