More info

Perched on a rocky 2.326-foot-high (704 m) peak called Corcovado, or “hunchback”, the statue of Christ the Redeemer overlooks the Guanabara Bay and its famous “Sugar loaf” as well as the city of Rio de Janeiro. The city owes its name—which means “River of January”—to a misunderstanding by the first Portuguese explorers who dropped anchor in the bay, in January 1502, and thought they had arrived at the mouth of a river or – another hypothesis – it was the wrong transcript of “ria” (which means bay in Portuguese). The capital of Brazil from 1763 to 1960, and even the capital of Portugal between 1808 and 1821, Rio de Janeiro has developed into a metropolis with a population of more than 11 million and spreading out over 30 miles (50 km). The city remembered for hosting the UN Conference on Sustainable Development, better known as Earth Summit/ECO-92, in June 1992, will reinforce its fame by hosting the World Cup final in 2014 and organizing the 2016 Olympic Games. Nevertheless, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo, the biggest city in the country and its financial capital, may form together in twenty years or so one urban area known by geographers as a megalopolis. Both metropolis and their satellite cities gather already 42 million inhabitants, which represents 23% of the Brazilian population.
