Mirante da Dona Marta is best described as the Corcovado of the poor: similar views, but no entrance fee, except for the R$ 2 parking fees. Now that's a bargain to view Rio from the top! Definitely less crowded than Corcovado. It is a very...More

Climbing down from the corcovado, just a little detour and you'll discover a lovely (free) place with a very nice view. It's worth it.

If you are catching a taxi to Christ the Redeemer this is definitely worth a stop off for views back over Rio as well as up to the "Redeemer"

Fantastic views from the top! Bit of a bumpy ride up but worth it. Very quiet when you get up there hardly any tourists. I would recommend getting a uber or taxi and getting them to wait whilst you're talking photos. Pass through a lot...More

This place can be an alternative to see the Christ from. There are many nica viatas all around. We took many nice photos with the Christ on the background. As line up for the team was ridiculous we decided to stop by there instead. In...More
