T The Christ the Redeemer statue or Christ of Corcovado is a 38 m high statue of Jesus of Nazareth with open arms showing the city of Rio de Janeiro, in Brazil. It is located at 709 meters above sea level in the National Park of Tijuca, at the top of the Corcovado Mountain. It dates back to 1931, after five years of work. It´s considered the largest Art deco statue in the world- incredible! Christ The Redeemer is one of the great attractions of Brazil, and it still looks almost like the first day it was shown. People love it! The Corcovado provides an amazing viewpoint for the average tourist; you can see the entire city of Rio de Janeiro, and for believers it is a place of pilgrimage. In 2007 it was named one of the New Seven Wonders of the Modern World. The Christ The Redeemer statue must be a beautiful tourist attraction to visit with family or friends. If some day I get the chance, I would love to go. Not only to see the statue, but also to see all the beautiful city of Rio de Janeiro.
