"Gateway from RJ to Minas" Juiz de Fora by DSwede

Juiz de Fora Travel Guide: 5 reviews and 10 photos

I passed through Juiz de Fora on my way up and back between Niteroi and my weekend destination of Ouro Preto. Having a late start due to work and traffic, I could not make it all the way so opted to stay the night on the way up and again stopped on the return trip for a short while.

The city is rather large, but really does not have so much to offer for the tourist or casual visitor. The old historic center is rather small and run down. It can be seen by foot rather quickly.

For more thoughts on my overall time here, feel free to visit my Brazil page.
