The night of November 22th, one day before the grand final, one of the iconic sites in Rio de Janeiro dressed in the colors of the Brazilian team. The action was carried out by the sportswear company that accompanies the football team.
Located at the Tijuca National Park, the image of the Christ Redeemer has a height of just over 30 meters and was installed on an 8-meter pedestal. After five years of construction, it was inaugurated 78 years ago, on October 12, 1931.
The image of Christ usually gets illuminated for great sporting and cultural events. For example, during the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, he dressed in the colors of the Brazilian flag. In addition to being considered one of the most important tourist attractions in Brazil, for believers in God it also became a place of pilgrimage.
