What travelers say:

Bread Mountain (Sugarloaf Mountain) is a famous tourist attraction in Brazil, which is named after French bread. It is located at the entrance of Guanabala Bay and is one of the symbols of Rio de Janeiro. The Bread Mountain is 396 meters high and can be seen from the top of the mountain. Adjacent to the Bakery Mountain are two slightly lower peaks -- Doug Noodle Mountain and Urka Mountain, both 215 meters high. In 1565, the city of Rio was created between these two mountains, and now at the foot of the mountain can see the Castle of St. Joao that defended Rio.
