Sugarloaf mountain provides a picturesque view of Rio as well as a decent view of Christ the Redeemer on a clear day. There are 2 gondola levels up on Sugarloaf mountain, with both levels providing great 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

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
