My name is Kelly and we’re here to tell you about the Sugarloaf Cable car.
Sugarloaf Cable Car
Pão de Açúcar attracts tourists from all over the world who would like to ride the famous Bondinho and enjoy a magnificent view of the city. The famous cable way was created by the engineer, Augusto Ramos, in 1908 but it was opened in 1912. It was the first cable car built in Brazil and the third in the whole world.
The first cable car (to the left) was coated in wood and was used for 60 years and in 1972 it was substituted by the second cable car (to the right), expanding its capacity of passengers from 22 to 75 peoples. The modern cable car has a smaller capacity, of 65 people, in order to offer more comfort.
It’s important to remember that the Bondinho was used in the movie Moonraker in 1979. That’s right guys! James Bond filmed here!!
