Corcovado is one of the most recognizable monuments in the world. At 2230 feet, this hunchback mountain is crowned with the famous Christ Redeemer statue. By night, the 100 foot tall, 1,000 ton statue appears to float above the city like an angel, guarding Brazil's most famous and beloved city. The view from this perch surpasses the imagination, and many visitors are awed by the spectacle. Whether shrouded in mist, or spotlighted by the blazing sun, Corcovado is a spectacular site to visit and wonder at. Tours are available, and the tram to the top provides a casual but breathtaking experience. No trip to Rio would be complete without a trip to the top.
