This is a faily accessible hill within the city boundaries with a great view and is a good destination for a weekend.

For photographers: This is your postcard view of Rio. It has the classic view of the bays surrounding Sugarloaf. I was here very early in the morning, just before sunrise. Carpark is very dark as well as the 5 minute walk out to the viewpoint....More
