Mount Corcovado

Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

From the summit of Mt. Corcovado, he watches over all. He sees the sunbathers on the beach, the chaos of the favelas that encircle the city, the mottled blues of the sea and the festooned celebrants dancing in the streets during Carnival. Rio's iconic symbol, Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) stands 130 feet tall in Tijuaca Forest National Park. Most visitors reach this Art Deco masterpiece by cogwheel train. As Rio's most recognizable symbol, Cristo Redentor is also on the New 7 Wonders of the World bucket list.
