Christ the Redeemer, the fascinating World Wonder in Brazil

One of the attracations that you have to visit at least once in a lifetime is the famous Statue of Christ the Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

With arms spread wide, as if to embrace the whole city of Rio de Janeiro sprawling below in spectacular disorder, the statue can be seen from all over town.

The panoramic view from the base of the statue is more than fantastic. At night the statue is lit up and seemingly hovers over the city as the mountain it stands on is dark.

The famous statue of Jesus is also considered the largest Art Deco statue in the world. It is the 5th largest statue of Jesus in the world with a height of 30 metres (98 ft). The statue’s arms stretch 28 metres (92 ft) wide. It is located at the peak of the 700-metre (2,300 feet) Corcovado mountain. The statue has become an icon for Rio de Janeiro and Brazil’s most famous monument. It was constructed between 1926 and 1931 and voted one of the New Seven Wonders of the World in 2007.
