The statue of Christ the Redeemer stands on top of the Corcovado mountain ...

Corcovado

Sugar Loaf
You can reach the top of the Corcovado either by driving or by riding the train through the forest.
Here you can see the road that leads to the top of the Corcovado.

Wow! What else to say?
The statue of the Christ
is 125 ft (38 m) tall
and is located
at the peak of the
2,330 ft (710 m)
Corcovado mountain.
Happiness is...
Soapstone was used as the outer layer of the statue due to its good resistance to extreme weather.
