Rio de Janeiro: Christ the Redeemer & Cerro Corcovado



Though it remains a bit hidden, the religious architecture of the Western World exceeds the cathedrals and temples and it reaches another kind of architecture who is related to the sculpture: the epic statues of Christ of the cities who are placed on montainous lands, specially in the Americas. Among the collection of this kind of statues, the most important one is, without a doubt, the Christ The Reedemer statue of Rio de Janeiro, situated at the top of the Morro Corcovado. It was built in the first half of the 20th Century, thanks to the donations of the people of the city, who also decided to open his arms in the final design. The Christ statue is nowadays, probably, the biggest icon of Brazil. It also managed to get two records: the biggest Art Deco statue and one of the 7 New Wonders of the World. However, maybe its biggest achievement is to have become the living icon of the presence of Brazil in the History of the Humanity.

Machu Picchu - Peru









Province: Urubamba
Place: Machu Picchu






Machu Picchu is a demonstration of the potential of the humanity. Without the technology we have today, the Inca Empire managed to build an entire city in the middle of the mountain and the jungle of the Amazonas. Who built it and why is still a mistery, like the case of the construction of the Pyramids of Egypt. The popularity of Machu Picchu as its known today began with Hiram Bingham, who rediscovered the city (another people rediscovered earlier in the last centuries). When he went there for the first time, the city was covered by the jungle. Machu Picchu has public squares, lots of houses (most of them without roofs), and temples for the gods of their culture.
