  • Juiz de fora is not just a place with colleges also has a very nice and beautiful story I found this beautiful vista with a wonderful Sun

  • The view from there is cool, especially if the day is sunny and open time, but not always very well attended. Lack a minimum structure, because there's nothing

  • From the top of mirante unspools a beautiful landscape of the mountainous region on the border of Mines with Rio de Janeiro. Not great, considering the similarity with many other views of viewpoints, but it pays to stop for a photo. Especially on sunny days.

  • Incredible view of the mountains and the sunset. But it was better when the tavern of the Sierra still worked at the scene. So you could enjoy nature while savoring a snack.

Where to stay in Juiz de Fora

With many hotels in Juiz de Fora catering specifically to businesspeople, a particularly high proportion of the city's accommodations can be found in the streets of the city center. The center offers more than just high-end options, though--you also can find plenty of budget hotels and small guesthouses in convenient, central locations. If you want to get away from the hustle and bustle, look southwest. A handful of accommodations sit within a few minutes of the university, and, a bit further away, near Parque da Lajinha.
