  • Fortunately the mirante of the BR-040 is starting to improve. Before, absolutely played the wilderness, now, with the installation of the Brewery this School begins to have a new face! Although still need much to get good, the fact of having a commercial point, which in some ways becomes a support for the tourist, it's an important step. Ah, the panoramic view is still very pretty!

  • 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

  • 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.
