One of the world’s best known and most beloved monuments stands atop the Corcovado Mountain in Rio de Janeiro, a famous city of Brazil, at a height of 710 metres. This is the statue of Christ the Redeemer, which is one of the wonders of our world.



To reach the statue, you can travel by a miniature train. This train runs through the steep Atlantic Rainforest up to the foot of the statue. From the base of the statue, you can get stunning glimpses of Rio from many different angles.

The statue took five years to construct, and was inaugurated on October 12th, 1931. It has become a symbol of the city, and of the warmth of the Brazilian people, who receive visitors with open arms.
