Rio´s buildings are just like Sao Paulo´s buildings: they are not very tall. But in Rio they fit so perfectly in those incredible natural settings, mounts, beaches, islands etc. that the view is always jaw dropping.

A great skyline is not only made of height and density. The combination of both with the natural landscape is what makes it great to see. Rio´s skyline would be perfect if it had a couple of buildings higher than 200m.


9/10

A solid 8.5 for me. Plenty of density and it looks amazing in the night shots, but it's clearly lacking height.

Rio is one of my favourite cities. I used to live really near but I've never visited
The view from the Christ statue is to die for!

The view from the Christ statue is incredible. The sea, the Tijuca forest, the Guanabara bay, the city, Sugar Loaf mountain ...
Beautiful
