  • Address: Estrado do Corcovado
  • Hours: Open daily
  • Admission: Free

The view from Corcovado provides a thrilling panorama of Rio de Janeiro and is a great way for visitors to orientate themselves in the sprawling seaside metropolis.

Spectacular in every direction the northern views offer the Maracana, the large soccer stadium built to host the 1950 World Cup, to the south you will see the Jardim Botanico and Ipanema, east is Sugarloaf and the beaches to its north.

At the top of Corcovado is the statue of Christ the Redeemer who watches over Rio, his left arm points north. Make sure the weather is good, clouds can ruin the excursion.

Practical Info

Corcovado is part of the Parque Nacional da Tijuca and the most exciting way to reach the top is the cog train which offers some spectacular views if you sit on the right hand side of the train. The train leaves from Rua Cosme Velho 513.

Taxis can be a great way to go and will negotiate a fee for a return trip and waiting time, this can work out cheaper than the cog train if there is more than one of you.
