  • For many years the mirante da BR 040 is abandoned. In the past there was a small structure to tourist, but now all stalls on site (still on the weekend). If you need a bottle of water is better to take home because there's no. Many claim that the view from the gazebo is very beautiful, it's true! But, it's not enough for us to leave the House. There are much better places to go.

  • Site that gradually losing importance. Does not have a restaurant, what a waste, since the atmosphere is very inviting.

  • Location of complete abandonment, despite the beautiful scenery involved. A shame to leave in its current state. Deserve attention by the municipal government.

  • Ótimo local e ambiente, ótima vista
  • Jóia pra relaxar e curtir o visual...
  • As margens da BR-040, em Juiz de Fora (JF), sentido Rio de Janeiro, o Mirante é um otimo lugar para apreciar os mares de morro de JF. Carece de uma estrutura para melhor acolher os visitantes, como banheiro, agua, um bar ou restaurante.
  • Adoro o Mirante Belvedere, vou lá pra curtir o mar de morro e tbem com meus filhos e netos ...
  • Lugar top.Tem uma bela vista,bem relaxante. Dia de domingo tomar um caldo de cana✌
