The idea for erecting a large statue on top of Corcovado had been around since the mid 1850s, but was dismissed in 1889 when Brazil became a Republic and mandated the separation of church and state. A second proposal to erect a statue in this spot was made in 1921, and, 10 years later, the monument was inaugurated.
On your way back to the pier, you will pass by the most famous beaches of Rio de Janeiro, including Sao Conrado (with a stop for photos of the hang gliders of Rio!), Leblon, Ipanema, and the world-renowned Copacabana beach. If you are in port long enough, you might want to come back later for some sunbathing!
