  • 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.

  • Is indeed a beautiful site, but really badly taken advantage. Could enjoy the beauty of the site and provide more leisure options. Worth it just for the view.

  • 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✌
