Sugarloaf

Pão de Açúcar (Sugarloaf)

Standing on the Sugarloaf platform at 396 m above sea level you have a marvelous view on Rio de Janeiro. Rio downtown, the Southern beaches, Corcovado and Niteroi Bridge lay in front of you. Up there one understands why many people regard Rio de Janeiro as the most beautiful town in the world.

Evenings are the best time to visit Sugarloaf and also enjoy the magnificent sunset. Less recommendable are clowdy days or the hours between 10:00 am and 11:00 am or 2:00 pm and 3:00 pm when crowds of tourists invade the mountain.

Two cable cars take you to the top of Sugarloaf. They run from 8:00 am to 10:00 pm. The lower cable car starts from Praca General Tiburcio at Praha Vermelha and takes you 220 m high to Morro da Urca where you already have a beautiful view. Don’t miss the parties regularly organized on this mountain at weekends.

The upper cable car takes you from Morro da Urca to Sugarloaf. Once you reached the top just take time and enjoy the unique panorama view.

If your journey starts from Copacabana or Ipanema you may take one of the frequent buses # 500, # 511 or # 512 or alternatively hire a taxi which takes you for around 15 Real (€ 5) to Praca General Tiburcio (lower station).
