Depart to Sugar Loaf. Arrival at Morro da Urca, and take a cable car to ascend the second mountain - Pão de Açúcar (Sugar Loaf). It is from these majestic view points that it is easy to see how the early explorers believed that they had sailed into the mouth of a great river when they named Rio de Janeiro – which means River of January, as the city was discovered on the 1st of January 1502. They had mistaken Guanabara Bay for the mouth of a great river. The most famous landmark of Guanabara Bay, this solid granite and quartz prominence rises 396m high above the sea and derived its name from the mountains shape – which resembles conical clay molds used earlier to refine sugar.
