Carnival Fever

Each year, more than 500,000 visitors descend onto Rio's streets to dance to hip-shaking samba and frevo music that blasts throughout the city. Dating back to 1723, the carnival is held before Lent each year with the Winner's Parade occurring on the Saturday after the carnival draws to a close.

Sugarloaf Mountain

Corcovado Mountain’s rival for the best views in Rio de Janeiro, 394-metre-high Sugarloaf Mountain got its name from the Portuguese, who thought it resembled moulds used to set sugar cane.

Rio de Janeiro

Christ the Redeemer

Arguably Rio's most iconic sight, standing with arms wide open at the top of Corcovado Mountain, is the Christ the Redeemer statue.
