Where is Christ the Redeemer exactly located?
Some admire the view, others sink into prayer: the Cristo Redentor statue in Rio de Janeiro has been attracting tourists and believers alike for 80 years.
The Redeemer is enthroned in the clouds: The Monumento Cristo Redentor was supposed to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Brazil’s independence in 1922, but apparently this undertaking was just as difficult as the emancipation from the colonial ruler Portugal. The money did not come together in time for the 30-meter-high statue, standing on an eight-meter-high pedestal high above Rio, so that the statue could not be inaugurated until nine years later. This Saturday she is celebrating her 80th birthday.
Most visitors take the Swiss-made cog railway up to the 710-meter-high Corcovado Mountain. The journey, which is accompanied by many “ohs” and “ahs” of the tourists, takes 20 minutes every time a spectacular view of Copacabana, Rio’s sea of houses and the white Atlantic beaches becomes clear again.
