  • There's no way you can go to the serra do cipó and not a visit to Mr. José Patrício (Juquinha). Make that selfie with family and friends, enjoy the sunset and take a beer in the tavern of Leo.

  • The statue was made in honor of the drifter who lived in the city and is a compulsory stopping point for those going on in place.

  • Place with a beautiful view, a little far, but it's worth. I really liked the statue and the homage was made, but it needs a restore. Next has a restaurant, food nothing dmais, with a good price. Worth the ride!

  • 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.

  • Very cool and magical place. Unfortunately the people who visit the site are keen to go up where you can at work, messing and breaking the statue. Regrettable is action.
