The statue of Christ Redeemer is an iconic monument in Rio de Janeiro’s skyline. At 130 ft tall it is the fifth largest statue of Christ, and the largest Art Deco statue in the world. On any given day the clouds roll over Cristo Redentor as he stands guard over the city. As one of the most popular attractions in Rio De Janeiro expect to share this with others.
