CORCOVADO AND BEACHES
Corcovado – The first official expedition to the Corcovado Mountain was headed by Dom Pedro I, heir to the Brazilian throne at the time. The Art-Deco statue situated at the top of the 710 meters high mountain was inaugurated in October 12, 1931 by President Getúlio Vargas.
The “Cristo Redentor” Statue is certainly the most visited and admired monument in Rio de Janeiro with its magnificent 360° panoramic view of the city. With the recently inaugurated escalators and panoramic elevators the two hundred steps climb to the top can thankfully be avoided.
The cog train ride through the Tijuca rain forest takes about 30min each way during which visitors can appreciate the exuberance of the native flora. The tour ends with a relaxing return drive to the Hotel along some of the beaches of the southern district of Rio de Janeiro.
