Tourist Attractions in Rio de Janeiro.
There is an overwhelming variety of tourist attractions and a magic surrounding Rio that emanates from its beaches and mountains, winding avenues and streets, as well as from the heart of every person.
The Portuguese arrived in Rio in the XVI century in January and mistook the entrance of the Guanabara Bay for the mouth of a big river. Hence the name Rio de Janeiro (River of January). There are historical buildings that remain from this time and also spectacular beaches so you can relax at the sun!
To make the most of this fantastic scenery a visit to the Corcovado Mountain is a must. There you will find the Christ statue and will experience an awesome view of the Sugar Loaf Mountain and the beaches of the neighboutring city, Niterói, linked to Rio by either the Rio-Niterói bridge or a short ferry ride. Other beach attractions in Niterói are Camboinhas and Itacoatiara.
