✯ Desde el cerro

Corcovado, meaning "hunchback" in Portuguese is a mountain in central Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The 710-metre (2,329 ft) granite peak is located in the Tijuca Forest, a national park. It is sometimes confused with nearby Sugarloaf Mountain.

Corcovado hill lies just west of the city center but is wholly within the city limits and visible from great distances. It is known worldwide for the 38-metre (125 ft) statue of Jesus atop its peak, entitled Cristo Redentor or "Christ the Redeemer".---------------------------------------------------------------------------------The statue of Christ Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro is a large white Christ is with open arms forward and over the entire city of Rio de Janeiro.Está located 709 meters above sea level, atop the Corcovado Mountain the most imposing hill surrounding Rio de Janeiro, and the famous beaches of Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, Barra da Tijuca and Sao Conrado do at his feet.-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------La estatua del Cristo Redentor de Río de Janeiro es un gran Cristo blanco que esta con los brazos abiertos al frente y sobre toda la ciudad de Río de Janeiro.Está situada a 709 metros sobre el nivel del mar, en la cima del cerro del Corcovado, el más imponente cerro que rodea a Río de Janeiro, y con las famosas playas de Copacabana, Ipanema, Leblon, Barra do Tijuca y Sao Conrado, a sus pies.
