The 7 World wonders -Part 4-

Christ, the Redeemer is located in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on top of the 700 meters Corcovado Mountain. (image from Flickr)

The statue is 39.6 meters tall (including the 9.5 meter pedestal) and 30 meters wide.

It's used in some actual movies as background because of its popularity.

The Twilight Saga: New Moon - When Edward is talking on the mobile phone, indicating that he was staying in Brazil after leaving Bella.

In the movie 2012 the statue is crumbling during a massive earthquake.

  1. Humm ... I must admit I didn't know this was counted one of the world's 7 wonders. We learn something new everyday, it seems. ;-)
