Is a trip to Brazil in your near future? We certainly hope so! Before finalizing the trip details, be sure to check our list of essential Brazilian sights. You won’t want to miss them!
1. Christ the Redeemer
Possibly the most iconic image of Brazil, this towering statue is perched atop a high mountain, overlooking the city of Rio de Janeiro and inspiring those who look up to see it.
2. Iguazu Falls
Iguazu Falls are dramatic, beautiful, and dangerous, offering one of the world’s most amazing views. Located on the border of Brazil, Argentina, and Paraguay, Iguazu Falls tie the three countries together by boundless, powerful falls and lush, green foliage.
3. The Amazon Rainforest
A biodiverse ecosystem like no other, the Amazon Rainforest is expansive and enormous. Much of it remains untouched and unblemished by human hands, but its periphery has come under some danger. Some of the most interesting animals in the world reside there, and the river that snakes through the trees is the longest in the world.
Like a painting coming to life, these picturesque wetlands are home to jaguars, capybara, and other exotic animals.
5. Sugarloaf Mountain
An easily identifiable rounded rock peak that juts above the beaches and city, Sugarloaf is an emblem of Rio de Janeiro. Visitors can reach the top via two separate cable cars and enjoy a stunning view of the city and ocean below.
6. The Amazon Theatre
Situated in the heart of the Amazon Rainforest, this opera house opened its doors in January 1897. The building is stunning and modern, boasting the colors of the Brazilian flag on its rounded dome.
7. Fernando de Noronha
Founded by Amerigo Vespucci, this archipelago is one of the world’s most beautiful island clusters, featuring stellar beaches, crystal clear waters, and amazing wildlife.
