Pedra do Leme
Situated near the Fort of Copacabana and Fort Duque de Caxias, this rock outcropping is ideal for sunset walks, fishing and photography.
Forte de Copacabana
The 12-foot thick walls and massive ramparts of this majestic fort were built on the eve of World War I. Visitors to the museum can view targeting instruments for the cannons that were considered state-of-the-art for their time or relax and enjoy wonderful views of Rio de Janeiro from the Café do Forte.
The Christ Statue
Each year, almost one million Brazilians and travelers from around the world ascend 690 meters to the top of Corcovado Mountain to views one of the world’s most famous statues, Christ the Redeemer, which has been gazing down over the city from its privileged perch since 1931.
A true feat of engineering, these gargantuan stone arches, 42 in total, were erected in 1750 to carry water from the Carioca River to the downtown districts.
This tranquil oasis offers a quiet retreat from the city bustle and distractions. Established by John VI of Portugal in 1808, these brilliant gardens offer a fascinating glimpse of Brazilian flora at the base of Corcovado Mountain.
Sugar Loaf Mountain
Soaring 396 meters above sea level, this massive rock formation offers spectacular views of the Rio de Janeiro skyline and the surrounding beaches and ocean. From the mountain’s summit, which can be reached via a breathtaking gondola ride, visitors will enjoy commanding sightlines of Urca, Guanabara Bay, Niterói, Corcovado Mountain and O Cristo Redentor (the Christ the Redeemer statue).
