Get out of town with these interesting Juiz de Fora side-trips: Conceicao da Ibitipoca (Cachoeirinha & Church of Nossa Senhora do Rosario), Parque Estadual do Ibitipoca (in Lima Duarte) and Vassouras (Matriz de Nossa Senhora da Conceicao Church & Museu Casa da Hera). And it doesn't end there: walk around Lajinha Park, get great views at Imperador Hill Belvedere, stop by Calcadao da Rua Halfeld, and buy something for everyone on your list at Independencia Shopping.
