It was nice to the the statue. You can see it in pictures, video, or whatever, but experiencing it personally is 100 times better. Just in case, they do not accept AMEX or USD so bring their currency money or Visa and Mastercard.

Great place for a full view of the city. Climb up the train line, which must be one of the oldest that still work, although you can board a taxi too, where taxi drivers give you various information on the way. Typical Brazilian vegetation, which...More

Was there during the busiest of busy times ... Carnaval ... so obviously the crowds were enormous. "Hurry up and wait" was the theme the day. Am I glad I went? Yes (second time there) Do I want to go again in the near future?...More

Very impressive HUGE statue, worth the visit. However, on a Sunday, tourists were elbow to elbow, so it was difficult to take photos.

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.

We saw security. But it was Carnival week. I would look up Gustavo Faro, the guide who took us up there.
