Got the student/Senior's 50% discount, with student id, and passport- unlike Corcovado who refused... Great views, from both cable car platforms. Nice cafe, and a better ambiance than Corcovado.

A wonderful place to visit with wonderful views. The ride up to the top by cable car is amazing. There are plenty viewing points to visits where you get exceptional views.

Urca is one of the oldest areas in Rio. Known for its
incredible views of the city, the neighbourhood runs
along Guanabara bay, providing visitors with an
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
