    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.
