I visited Rio de Janeiro in 2007 for my friend's bachelor party. We stayed in Rio during our whole time in Brazil, and loved it. We hired a driver to take us up to Christ the Redeemer.

The Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ was built from 1922 to 1931. The statue is 98 feet (30m) high, excluding the 26 foot (8m) pedestal. The arms stretch 92 feet (28m) wide.

The views atop Corcovado mountain were spectacular.
