Overview

The Two Brothers Mountain has one of the most incredible views of Rio de Janeiro, completing the landscape of the South Zone coast with a beauty that has earned it the title of a Rio postcard. The trail is considered relatively easy and, upon reaching the summit, it is possible to see the entire South Zone of Rio de Janeiro, its beaches and paths designed in neighborhoods. It is breathtaking!
