Christ the Redeemer Webcam, Rio de Janeiro

It’s difficult to know what viewers of this webcam focused on Christ The Redeemer in Rio de Janeiro are expecting. If it’s a miracle movement, they could be watching a long time as it’s been in the same spot for over ninety years and hasn’t moved yet.

The magnificent statue of Christ The Redeemer sits on top of the Corcovado Mountain which towers seven-hundred metres above the Brazilian city. The statue itself is thirty eight metres high, if the pedestal it stands on is included in the measurement, and the arm span stretches a staggering twenty-eight metres.

Those statistics have made the monumental Christ The Redeemer one of the new Seven Wonders of the World and climbing the steep pathway up to where it stands has become a pilgrimage for many. Whether they make the hike to get a close up of the statue’s base, that’s all you’re going to see of it when you’re that near, or make the trek to take in the magnificent views of Rio below is something known only to those who do it. The latter has our vote as the panoramic vistas from the summit of Corcovado Mountain are truly incredible.
