"Can't Miss This Place "

Very nice place with beautiful views of the entire Rio de Janeiro, very well solved queue system, even in the summer season with a very large number of tourists do not wait too long. At the summit, you can meet the everywhere small monkeys, a good place for a walk. I would recommend.

Sugarloaf Mountain

Sugarloaf Mountain ">[ˈpɐ̃w̃ d͡ʒi aˈsukaʁ]) is a peak situated in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, at the mouth of Guanabara Bay on a peninsula that juts out into the Atlantic Ocean. Rising 396 m above the harbor, its name is said to refer to its resemblance to the traditional shape of concentrated refined loaf sugar. It is known worldwide for its cableway and panoramic views of the city.

The mountain is one of several monolithic granite and quartz mountains that rise straight from the water's edge around Rio de Janeiro.

The mountain is protected by the Sugarloaf Mountain and Urca Hill Natural Monument, created in 2006. This became part of a World Heritage Site declared by UNESCO in 2012.
