It can be seen from most South Side neighborhoods of Rio de Janeiro: Copacabana, Ipanema, Botafogo, Flamengo. The Christ Blessing Statue stands on the Corcovado Mountain, which is 710 m tall (about 2,400 feet). The Statue of Christ stands 30 meters high (100 feet), covered in a mosaic of soapstone. On its base there is a small chapel.

CHRIST STATUE RIO DE JANEIRO BRAZIL – DESIGN:

The original design of the Christ the Redeemer Statue was done by a Brazilian, named Heitor da Silva Costa. He was also the engineer in charge of the construction. He shared the project with Frenchmen sculptor Paul Landowski, who took almost two years working on the hands and face. It was built from 1926 to 1931, with funds raised from donations.

This spot offers a 360° view to Rio Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Come on a day with clear sky, and postcard photos are guaranteed.

CHRIST THE REDEEMER STATUE  BRAZIL – TRAIN RIDE:

If you go on your own, take a bus or taxi to Rua Cosme Velho, 513, at Cosme Velho neighbourhood. This is where you buy tickets for the small train that goes uphill.

The train ride up the Corcovado mountain to visit the Christ the Redeemer Statue is a plus, as it goes through a nature trail. And the special charm is that Estrada de Ferro do Corcovado was originally built in 1882 by Emperor Dom Pedro II.
