Juiz de Fora City
by Paulo Carvalho
Juiz de Fora is the second most important industrial center in Minas Gerais.
The massive presence of immigrants throughout its history has given the city a cosmopolitan spirit.
Juiz de Fora is an important regional cultural center. The city also hosts a yearly classical music festival, the Festival Internacional de Música Brasileira Colonial e Música Antiga (International Festival of Brazilian Colonial Music and Early Music).
