Pao de Acucar
Pao de Acucar or Sugar Loaf Mountain is one of Rio's most famous landmarks. It is the best place to gain a dramatic perspective on how mountains and sea confront each other to create the natural beauty of the "Cidade Maravilhosa" (Marvelous City), as the city is known. Catch the thrilling funicular ride up the hill and float above Leme. The top commands a glorious view of Guanabara Bay with Botafogo beach to the north and Copacabana to the south, and the wild landscape of Rio proper in between. Be sure to check out the old open air cable car on display that was used in the '30s.
After Corcovado, I think the Sugar Loaf is the other must in Rio!
First, if you can stomach the ride in cable cars, you will love this adventure! You must take a cable car from the ground to the first mountain, then another cable car to the taller mountain. Then you have to take the cable cars back.
At first, the heigh is a little scary, but you almost forget about it when you start seeing the beautiful views. It's truly a unique experience.
One of the times I was getting off the cable car, I was greeted by these native tree monkeys! They were everywhere!
You get excellent views from the city and the Corcovado from here!
Wonderful place if you can resist high altitudes.
I recommend you to take a short tour in a Chopper located at the final stage of the pao de Azucar ( Sugar´s Bread.
You will flight over Copacabana and other places
Equal to Corcavado as a must see for all!
The view is absolutely beautiful...Rio is one of the most beautiful places on earth truly. The cable car ride up is neat too (reminded me of the Bond movie filmed there). Once you are at the top, you have breathtaking views all around!
A different view of a beautiful city. No matter where you are in Rio, you'll have a view of something interesting or beautiful. From the "Sugar Loaf" you'll get some of you most unforgetable views (and pictures) of Rio. If you are lucky you see Corcavado disappaer and reappear from the clouds. Go in the late afternoon and see the city light up. The ride up offers a few thrills and good views.
If you are afraid of heights &/or long cable car rides, then this is NOT for you. Otherwise, get over to the station and get your tickets and prepare for the best view in Rio. You've seen it in films & on TV & in photographs, but you haven't seen anything till you've actually been to the top.
You take two tiers of cable cars to get to the top of Sugarloaf. Great view from both tiers with the Corcovado in the background. You get awesome vistas all around, private beaches, the city, Copacabana beach...just too may things and too awesome to describe. I got some great shots of the sun's rays through the clouds reflecting off the water...
A must see spot in this world of ours.
I am brazilian and proud of having such a wonderful place in my loved Brazil. The view is just amazing. It's a heaven on earth. You can see the whole city from there. The best time to go is late afternoon when you can also see the sunset. One of my favourite spots in Rio de Janeiro
Visible in the distance from the top of the Corcovado and the whole Parque do Flamengo , it was the
longest bridge of its type in the world when it was finished in 1974. If you have a car, ...
This is a cute, quiet place located within Ipanema, one of the most beautiful and well known areas of Rio
de Janeiro.Weï¿½re only three blocks from the beach, surrounded by a wealth of restaurants, shops and, of course, bars ...
At 2230 feet, this hunchback mountain is where the Christ the Redeemer statue stands with outstretched arms. At night, the
100 ft, one thousand ton statue seems to float as if it were a guardian angel for the city. ...
