We would have loved to hike up through the Tijuca rainforest, but as we only had 1 day in Rio we didn't think we'd have time. In reality, we were glad we didn't, as it was sweltering just sitting in the shade, let alone puffing up steep humid slopes. The hike generally takes hours and is best done in the morning before it gets too hot.

You should be aware that there have been robberies on the trail, so don't take valuables or hike alone. For more information on what the hike up Corcovado is like, check out this post by The Life Well Traveled. Top things to do in Paraty on Brazil's Costa Verde. What is it like at the top?

As you'd expect, it's all elbows and selfie sticks on the platform in front of Christ the Redeemer. Even outside of peak season it was heaving, and we had to wait ages to push to the front to get photographs of the city below. Although I'm sure if we weren't polite English tourists we could've jostled with the best of them and got there sooner.

There are restaurants and toilets at the top. The food is unsurprisingly mediocre and overpriced, but you're paying for the view of course. A private speedboat tour of the beaches and islands around Paraty. September and October are great months thanks to cooler temperatures and less humidity. There's of course no perfect time of day to visit.

It really depends what your priorities are. Do you want to avoid the crowds, take pictures of the city, or the statue? Best for photographing the statue, avoiding the crowds and the heat of the day. The sun rises towards the statue which makes taking photos of the city, harbour and Sugar Loaf Mountain rather challenging. Best for hedging your bets and trying to photograph both the city and the statue.

The downside is that it gets very hot and crowded at this time.

I'm so glad we made the effort in the end. Whilst we were hot, tired and grumpy for most of the day, it would have been madness to miss this opportunity, and I'd agree with all those who have gone before and say if you do nothing else in Rio, do this! The construction lasted for about nine years.

    For several reasons, first and foremost technological ones, the creation of a giant statue in Brazil at that time was impossible, so all parts, including the frame, were manufactured in France. Disassembled parts were delivered to Brazil, and then transported by rail to the top of Mount Corcovado. The opening of the monument took place in October 12, This date is considered to be the "birthday" of the statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro and is annually celebrated with a lot of festivities.

    The statue was repaired twice — in and , and in it underwent some cosmetic restoration: In and the system of nighttime illumination was upgraded.

The concrete making up the base was supplied from Limhamn , Sweden.
