I went there as part of my day tour around Rio. The view is great. The ride on the cablecar is fun but that is pretty much it. The view from the Christ the Redeemer is great as well.

Don't miss out on this view. There is also a great trail that you can take to go up to the first point of the Mountain. From there you can take the lift to the highest point. I'd recommend the trail, though. It's not super...More

vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts
people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect
