Important Religious Institutions in Rio de Janeiro

Christ the Redeemer
314 Reviews
Rio de Janeiro
4.1km from downtown
"The statue of Christ in Rio de Janeiro (the statue of Christ in Salvation, Portuguese: Cristo Redentor) is also called the statue of Christ in Brazil. It is a large statue of Christ in the Art Deco style. It is located on Monte Cristo in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is the symbol of the city and one of the most famous monumental sculptures in the world. It was built in 1931, 38 meters high, 1,145 tons, and 23 meters between the fingers of the right and left hands. Jesus Christ, in a robe and with his arms flat, looked down on the beautiful panorama of Rio de Janeiro, heralding the spirit of fraternity and the praise for independence. Jesus looked like a blue-boomed Atlantic Ocean, with open arms looking out from afar like a huge cross, solemn and dignified. The figure of Jesus Christ is one with the mountains, and some clouds float between the peaks, making Jesus appear more mysterious and holy. The huge statue of Jesus, built on the top of this high mountain, is visible from most of the city, day and night, and is the most famous symbol of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil's famous city."

Reasons to Recommend: 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.

Tips: It is recommended to go to the top of the church! ! It will be very regrettable to miss it! ! Standing on the top overlooking the Mediterranean < overlooking the entire Barcelona fish if waiting for the sunset here, it definitely contracts for the whole city"

Reasons to Recommend: Rio de Janeiro Cathedral is a church that differs from the traditional concept of Rio de Janeiro. Unlike the old and elegant churches in Europe, the entire church can hardly find any elements the belong to the church. It is a modern building with a reinforced concrete structure. There is a cross at the top of the tower. It is this simple cross that seems to confirm the identity of the church.
