Overview

Pão de Açúcar or Sugarloaf Mountain is one of Rio's most famous landmarks. Catch the thrilling funicular ride up the hill and float above Leme. The top commands a glorious view of the Guanabara Bay with the Botafogo beach to the North and Copacabana to the South, and the wild landscape of Rio proper in-between. Be sure to check out the old open-air cable car on display that was used in the 1930s. There are vendors selling coconuts and juice, as well as a food and refreshments stand.
