What a great sight-seeing place!! There is a lot of history and information provided, and the views are amazing!! Enjoy a meal and or a drink on the mountain top, between the stages. I highly recommend the cable car experience at Sugarloaf Mountain!

You have two mountains, Urca and Sugarloaf. You go by cable car to both. It is the best view of Guanabara Bay and Rio de Janeiro.

opportunity to watch the sunset from one of Rio’s
greatest natural treasures: Sugarloaf Mountain (Pao de
Acucar). It is said that the locals in Urca are “bon
vivant,” which is one of the reasons the area attracts
people of all styles and ages. Urca is the perfect
