Tourism in Rio de Janeiro
The creation of Rio de Janeiro goes back to the beginning of the 19th century, when many expeditions were made to the Americas. Due to its port, Rio soon became a strategically important point for the traffic of people and materials, which entailed the construction of a great fortress and the development that followed.
Located in Guanabara Bay, Rio boasts a tropical climate that makes it suitable for a visit at any time of year. This generous climate has forged the citys global reputation among beach-lovers, particularly Copacabama and Ipanema. Another symbol that characterizes the city and demonstrates the local character is the location of the majestic Christ the Redeemer at the top of Pao de Azucar (or Sugar Loaf). The postcards one can send from Rio are innumerable, any one of which depicts the greatest aesthetic value. A city of enchantment and diversion, of multitude activities: Rio de Janeiro is a unique place in which to amuse and lose oneself, a place where anything is possible.
