  • It is a nice place to stop and look out to take some pictures. However, the only pic that you will get at this lookout that you don't get at the top of Corcovado is of the Cristo Redentor (Christ the Redeemer) statue from afar. Other than that you can take the same, if not better, pics from atop the Corcovado.
