Cristo Rei do Pantanal

Mato Grosso & Mato Grosso do Sul

Easily reachable via a short but steep walk or taxi ride uphill, Corumbá's answer to Christ the Redeemer is a little chipped and crowded out by cell towers but presents you with sweeping views of the town and the Pantanal in the distance. Clear mornings are best; sunset is also nice. Head south down Rua Cáceres.
