Central to Brazil tourism, is the Christ the Redeemer monument at the top of Corcovado Hill. The monument has been named one of the new 7 Wonders of the Modern World. It is a sight of Brazil known throughout the world and no visit to Rio de Janeiro is complete without a trip to see this famous monument.
Hundreds of thousands of people visit the monument each year by taking a train ride up Corcovado Hill. The train ride alone is a fun thing to do in Brazil. The electric train rides safely through the biggest urban forest in the world without negatively impacting the environment. You are likely to see wildlife such as monkeys, lizards, birds and butterflies on your way to and from the monument. The Christ the Redeemer monument was constructed from 1922-1931 and is made of soap stone. It is a fitting tribute to the religious nature of Brazil and one Brazil attraction you don’t want to miss on your next visit.
