Many bays, small islands, rocks and the beautiful coastline characterize the fascinating landscape. The beaches of Copacabana and Ipanema are among the most beautiful beaches are world-famous. The approximately 6.5 million (Cariocas) account that the city also has many attractions and recreational areas. The best known are probably the 395-meter high Sugar Loaf  (“Pão de Açúcar”) overlooking Copacabana beach. The “mountain” Rios is the 709 meters high Corcovado (“Cristo Redentor” / Christ statue). It was upgraded in early 2003 and is now also accessible for wheelchairs. The town was restored in the last two years, in many respects and presents visitors with a new vision.
