The climb up to the statue ends at the Christ feet. The fondation of the statue lays upon a number of concrete platforms connected by stairs from which one can observe the different panoramic views of the city. At the lower platform the view over the Rodrigo de Freitas lake, the Ipanema and Leblón beaches and a big part of the Tijuca park. At the second level platform the view of the northern part of Copacabana, Botafogo, Flamengo, Guanabara bay and the Sugar Loaf.
