Going to Rio de Janeiro and not going to know Christ the Redeemer, then he did not know the most of Rio de Janeiro. It is an imposing sculpture located on the hill of Corcovado, classified as one of the 7 Wonders of the modern world. To get to the park, it is recommended to go by taxi or uber, since going by private car there are no places nearby to park. To get to the top, you can take the park's own train, or by coastal bus. (These are through package tours). It is interesting to go up to the top on the train, where you can see the mountain forest and landscapes of Rio de Janeiro. Tickets can be through the official website, at the Park ticket offices or those who do so through tour operators, they will be provided.
Cheap is at the box office and on the web. If you are going to buy them at the box office, I recommend arriving in the morning at 8 or 9 in the morning. so that you can board the train half an hour or 1 hour later, depending on the time of year it may be even longer. If you buy it on the web, choose a time when you are sure to be at the entrance of the park, and be in it at least 1 hour before. Ciesorese, for the applications that give weather data as it will be the weather for the day you choose to go, because if it is raining, it is very cloudy there are strong winds, it is most likely that you will not be able to climb, since by measures of security does not let go up. In good weather conditions. Upon reaching the top there will be The imposing Christ the Redeemer where you will have a 360 degree view of Rio de Janeiro, among the main views are the Guanavara Bay, Sugarloaf Mountain, Copacabana, Ipanema, the Niterorid Bridge and many more.
There are souvenir shops that are perhaps more expensive than in other stores in Rio de Janeiro, but just buying it at the foot of Christ the Redeemer already has a great added value. There are two businesses that sell soft drinks, beers, fast foods (hamburgers, hot dogs, sandwiches) one or another type of simple food such as pasta, french fries, meat and chicken. It also has a small chapel at the foot of Christ the Redeemer so that you can raise your prayers and give thanks to God for having given you the opportunity to see this wonder. The visits are only during the day until six in the afternoon, the time to be up there is unlimited during the day unless due to weather conditions they vacate the place for safety and there are no night visits. Select a good day that has excellent weather conditions with lots of sun, bring a good camera, some sunglasses and get ready to visit, know and enjoy one of the wonders of the modern world. To date I have climbed 7 times, the energy at the top is incredible.
