Corcovado

Highly recommended
The Corvocado, a 710m-high granite peak situated in the Parque Nacional da Tijuca, is a site not to be missed. The best way to get there is to take the rack railway (departing from Rua Cosme Velha), which passes through the world's largest urban forest. You can also get there by car or taxi. The Cristo Redentor is at the top. The views are incredible!
