The imposing Corcovado mountain, with 710 meters above sea level, has a 360 degree view of the city and on its summit, guarding everyone and everything the statue of Christ the Redeemer, one of the 7 wonders of the modern world.
In 1884, the last emperor of Brazil Dom Pedro II inaugurated the Corcovado train station, with Swiss trains for the steep mountain that to this day take us in modern Swiss trains on a journey through the reforested conservation area of the National Park of Tijuca Forest.
The Sugarloaf Mountain cable car was the third to be installed in the world. Opened in 1912/1913, it continues to take visitors in modern cabins enjoying the panoramic view of the Urca and Sugarloaf Mountains. The sunset with the privileged view of the historic entrance to Guanabara Bay, the famous Copacabana beach and the mountain range that surrounds the city frame the end of the tour.
