Rio’s Famous Attractions
If you find yourself in Rio de Janeiro, you have to take the time to reach the summit of Corcovado Mountain. At the very top is the world-famous 98-foot Statue of Christ the Redeemer (Cristo Redentor), which is an art deco sculpture, made from soapstone and concrete. Another feature of Rio that is globally recognized is the Sugarloaf Mountain (Pão de Açúcar) at 396 feet, which welcomes sailors entering the city from Guanabara Bay. There is a cable car that you can take to the summit. From there, you can behold the unforgettable scene unfolding below.
Rio had another attraction that is not a landmark but an annual event called the Rio Carnival. The four-day festival is held throughout Brazil, but the most famous is the one held in Rio. You might as well schedule your visit to the city during the Carnival to see this spectacle that draws millions of tourists every year. The parties are not confined to bars and restaurants but also in the streets and squares of the city. The Carnival is considered by many as a singular experience.
Rio de Janeiro is the 2nd largest city in Brazil and once served as the country’s capital from 1763 until 1815. Today, it is one of the most visited destinations in Latin America and is recognized as the capital of samba and bossa nova.
