"The site consists of an exceptional urban setting encompassing the key natural elements that have shaped and inspired the development of the city: from the highest points of the Tijuca National Park’s mountains down to the sea. They also include the Botanical Gardens, established in 1808, Corcovado Mountain with its celebrated statue of Christ, and the hills around Guanabara Bay, including the extensive designed landscapes along Copacabana Bay which have contributed to the outdoor living culture of this spectacular city. Rio de Janeiro is also recognized for the artistic inspiration it has provided to musicians, landscapers and urbanists." -http://whc.unesco.org
Glad to have this card a few years back...
That means, the site wasn't on the UNESCO list at that time...
Thank you so much Elaine for this wonderful card!
Got to have this card over 3 years ago.
Thank you so much, Evelyn!
