What people are saying:

Rio de Janeiro, on the Atlantic Ocean, was Brazil's capital until 1960 and is the country's second largest city. Christ stands on a hilltop overlooking Brazil's former capital. It opens its hands, welcomes people all over the world, symbolizing Brazil's enthusiasm, like the samba dance, warm and unrestrained.

Additional Information

Introduction

Located on the east side of the Chijuca National Forest, Jesus Mountain was built to commemorate the success of the Brazilian independence movement. From a distance, it seems to welcome and embrace people coming to Brazil. When the weather is fine during the day, you can see the image of Jesus in any corner of Rio. When the night falls, the white light on the image of Jesus will match the urban landscape of the mountain, which is psychedelic and solemn.
