  • Nice ride to enjoy the mountains and mining still approved by the statue of Juquinha could explore the site more carefully. Attention on the road is dangerous.

  • We were in the serra do cipo, then the statue already has stunning views. Up to vjsta is lovelier still. Worth it for the view and for being a postcard of the region, right?

  • The statue of Juquinha is a tribute to a drifter who lived in the mountains with his two brother, picking flowers and gave the tourists in return for clothes or food. Next to it has a bar that offers plenty of things to customers. The landscape around is lush and the sunset makes your brand when I climb on the mountain next to admire all the beauty of the Sierra.

  • Maravulhoso
  • Inspiration Juquinha da Serra is as a character in many legends in the Serra do Cipó, however, your life and story are real, and the tribute he received, in the form of a statue at the top of the mountain is one of the most visited tourist spots in the region.  José Patrício, or Juquinha, as he was known was a drifter who lived in the mountains with his two brothers; He picking flowers and gave the tourists in return for clothes or food, or any other object, the important thing was the interaction. His simple way of living next to nature, and clinging to the mountains where he lived, made of Juquinha a extremely popular figure and honey.  The legends say that mamou on Wolf, who used to eat Scorpions, who had been stung by more than a hundred snakes and had more than a hundred years. Your Juquinha is the legend of Serra do Cipó. However, an interesting fact that most marked their stories ... Juquinha da Serra, died twice! Found a night for your brother lying no pulse or heartbeat was veiled with sadness, until rose on the casket, funeral, surprising everyone. A rare disease, the acometia, the catalepsy, causing your heart stopped beating, seeming dead, and some time after "returning to life". However, unknown at the time of the disease, Its Juquinha become legend, and was told that was immortal, sent from the gods and even E.T.  No one knows exactly when Your Juquinha actually died, some say it was three days after the fact, other, claim 30 days. The right age no relatives know. Of right, died again, and the second time was for real.  Died in 1983, and in 1987 the mayors of the Pillar and Conceição do Mato Dentro requested to artist Virginia Ferreira, who developed the statue in honor of good Juquinha. The statue was built on a plateau located in the higher part of the EPA (environmental protection area) that offers a privileged view of the Serra do Cipó, and is 1 km from the Ordinance of capybara, where you can visit the waterfall of the capybara, one of the largest in the region.

  • The view and wonderful. The statue of the Juca a true work of art in the open air. Great place for photography. At the end of the day so the image and spectacular. The story of the Juca and quite interesting. Well worth visiting. However the statue needs urgent repairs and some irresponsible people littering in place, such as beer cans.

  • The statue of Juquinha is a classic tourist spot of Serra do Cipó. Very beautiful to look at, tribute to a man of very beautiful story and known in the region. The landscape of the place where it was inserted is a portrait of Mine.

  • To recall people who have been very important in life. Needs to be better maintained, because it is showing signs of degradation.
