Great spot for a picture from here you can see Rio in 360 all the sites are there for you to see and it is a great spot a lot quieter than Christ the redeemer!

Very similar to the Christ Redeemer view but a little closer to sugarloaf and less crowded. I rank this the best view of Rio, redeemer next, 2 brothers, sugar loaf then chinese vista in that order.

Mirante da Dona Marta is best described as the Corcovado of the poor: similar views, but no entrance fee, except for the R$ 2 parking fees. Now that's a bargain to view Rio from the top! Definitely less crowded than Corcovado. It is a very...More

Climbing down from the corcovado, just a little detour and you'll discover a lovely (free) place with a very nice view. It's worth it.

We took an early tour of Christ the Redeemer and we arrived early, so as a bonus the tour guide took us to Mirante Dona Marta and WOW were the views spectacular! It has a lot of the same views as the top of Corcovado,...More

If you are catching a taxi to Christ the Redeemer this is definitely worth a stop off for views back over Rio as well as up to the "Redeemer"

Santa Teresa
Santa Teresa is a bohemian enclave hosting many local
artists’ studios. The narrow, winding streets of this
neighbourhood were revitalised years ago, and visitors
can now stroll through this area to view magnificent
mansions dating back to the late 19th and early 20th
century. A highlight not miss: Museu Chacará do Céu, a
former mansion turned museum which houses works by
prominent Brazilian modern artists.
