The former Hotel das Paineiras, built in 1884, transforms into the Paineiras Visitors Center at the foot of Corcovado. The tourist reception space provides transportation to the Christ the Redeemer statue and features interactive exhibitions, a souvenir shop, and on-site restaurant options.
The permanent exhibition “Protector Forest” tells the story of the Tijuca National Park, in which the center is located. The Paineiras Shop offers exclusive products as souvenirs of the visit to the Christ the Redeemer statue, and you can also take a break for a snack while enjoying the view of Corcovado Mountain.
Embark on this incredible experience with vans that take you to the Paineiras Visitors Center from Largo do Machado or Praça do Lido in Copacabana.
