Sites in Rio

Our “Stylish Heath” reporters are back in Rio jump-starting their summer; darting around this seaside city of Brazil staying in Leme at the end of Copacabana beach. This distinctive neighborhood takes its name from the nearby rock formation whose shape resembles the rudder of a ship.

Located on the Peak of Corcovado Mountain in the Tijuca Forest National Park overlooking the city of Rio is an Art Deco statue of Jesus Christ. Created by French sculptor Paul Landowski and built by Brazilian engineer Heitor da Silva Costa made of reinforced concrete and soapstone.
