Mirante dona Marta Rio de Janeiro Brasil
Rio de Janeiro
Cercadas pela vegetação do Parque Nacional da Tijuca, as escadas que levam até o mirante convidam os visitantes a apreciarem toda a beleza vegetal da área. Iniciando o caminho, uma mata de bambus esconde micos e instigam a curiosidade dos visitantes com os constantes ruídos de animais atravessando o matagal. Chegando ao parapeito, a sensação é indescritível. De um lado, o Cristo deslumbra sua grandeza, num pedestal privilegiado: o morro do Corcovado. Ao redor, a Baía de Guanabara contracena com a urbanização carioca. Isso sem falar no Pão de Açúcar e na Lagoa Rodrigo de Freitas, outras peculiaridades da cidade.
