OF the redeeming christ

Until the tourism authorities authorize the ascent to Christ the Redeemer without paying the fees, we suggest finishing at the Santuário da Penha.

Here you can receive the certificate.

You can go by bike via Porto Maravilha to Corcovado. We don't have signage yet. Rio authorities have not yet authorized it. Let's paint arrows soon.

On foot - from Penha to Central Station (14 km.) travel by train

From the Central Station, go on foot or the Museum of Tomorrow (Porto Maravilha) by light vehicle and then on foot (or by bicycle) to Corcovado (18 km.).

Later we will put the details of this excerpt

We are studying with the authorities of the state and the city to offer the best way and the best way to reach the Sanctuary of Christ the Redeemer.

For the time being we do not have the authorization to climb to Christ the Redeemer without paying tourist taxes.

There is no certificate in Corcovado.

From Central Station to Corcovado via Porto Maravilha it is 18 km further.

We are hopeful that with the help of the authorities of RIO de Janeiro we will have the marked path to Corcovado and climb to Christ the Redeemer without paying the entrance fee..
