Bibendum
Sugarloaf Mountain, the rocky peak named after the shape of its outline, but also after the approximate translation of the name given to it by the Indians (Pau-nd-Acuqua, "pointed and isolated promontory"), affords an uninterrupted view over Rio. From a height of 395m, you can admire Guanabara Bay (the mountain stands at the entrance) and the coastline, with Copacabana to the south and Corcovado to the west. When the sun goes down, the panorama is absolutely magical but as such it draws heavy crowds. You reach the summit by cable car (with a change at Morro da Urca).
