Corcovado/Monumento Cristo Redentor
  
  Rio de Janeiro 




 
The greatest symbol of the soul of Rio de Janeiro is the statue of Christ the Redeemer. With arms outstretched in blessing and in welcome to the city more than 700m below, the soapstone sculpture was erected to mark the centennial of Brazil's independence from Portugal in 1922 by Heitor da Silva Costa. Standing more than 30m tall on the granite peak called Corcovado, and overlooking one of the world's most beautiful cities, the statue is being restored by the privately funded RMF.
