Wonders of The World


Christ the Redeemer, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Whether you're religious or not, the sight of a 98-foot (30m) Christ rising above Rio de Janeiro's magical mountainous landscape with outstretched arms is a remarkable sight. The largest Art Deco statue in the world, the iconic monument was the brainchild of a priest in the 1850s but wasn't built until the 1920s. Dedicated in 1931, the concrete Christ has surveyed the city from the top of the forest-clad Corcovado mountain ever since and is one of Brazil’s most visited sights.
