Cemetery
It’s strange to think that a cemetery can become a tourist attraction, but Cemiterio Bizantino impresses with its white tombs that contrast the dark green hill in its background. Built when the smallpox epidemic struck the city dwellers who exploited the diamond mines, many of whom were Arabic and Turkish origin, the cemetery tell the tales of deceased people’s origins. Opposite the site is Chapel of Santa Luzia. Plan your visit to Cemiterio Bizantino and a wealth of other attractions, well-known and undiscovered, using our Mucuge trip itinerary maker.

  • View the graves with people born in the last century is different. But the experience is picturesque and a little weird. Visit a cemetery is not something that is very much a part of what I was looking for in the chapada

  • Very beautiful cemetery seen at night, it is lit with different colours the night but no, just take the pictures from afar, it seems that day may come in but I didn't go for the day, but as soon as he arrives on the cemetery soon Mucugê draws attention because it's at the entrance gives city.

  • For those who like to know all the sights for which is worth a visit in the cemetery. Your 19 century architecture influenced by the Turks residing in High to buy diamond is the big difference. The hint for the Goths, curious and passionate about history.

  • There's not much you can do, but if you've come this far, there's no harm in taking a look.
