Corcovado Christ Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro  |  Rio de Janeiro, Brazil  |  Yesterday as part of my tour, I made a long stop at the stunning and iconic Corcovado Christ Redeemer at the top of Corcovado Hill (or Morro as locals call them) 700 meters. Corcovado, translates as hunchback. Considered the largest Art Deco statue in the world and the 5th largest statue of Jesus in the world, made completely of soapstone, overlooking in the back to Tijuca Forest – the largest urban forest in the world, and to the front the Guanabara Bay. Breathtaking panoramic views of Rio de Janeiro, overtaken by the presence of the majestic statue, which welcomes everyone to Rio de Janeiro and Brazil with wide open arms.

Jump on the Corcovado Train and ride for approximately 20 minutes, to the top of Corcovado Hill on comfortable trams. The first train date from 1884. Ride along the Tijuca Forest, while you enjoy lovely panoramic views of Rio de Janeiro and Guanabara Bay. (see vide below of me on the Tram, which BTW remind me a lot to the one in Hong Kong, the Peak).
