The tourist zone (South Zone) of Rio de Janeiro. Sugarloaf Mountain rises from Guanabara Bay. You can see the tram station on its top. Following the shore off to the left leads to the Central District (downtown).
Christo Redentor sits opposite Sugarloaf Mountain overlooking the South Zone and the bay. You can see a bit of Copacabana Beach on the far right.
Copacabana Beach is on the left and Ipanema Beach is on the right with a big lagoon in the middle.
Morro Dois Irmaos (“Two Brothers Mountain”) sits at the far side of Ipanema. Favela Rocinha is located on its right flank and around the back side.
A closer daytime picture. You can see the tiniest edge of Rocinha way around to the right of Two Brothers. Another large favela called Vitigal has climbed up its left flank above the beach.
