Cemiterio Bizantino, Mucuge

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. A visit to Cemiterio Bizantino represents just the start of the adventure when you use our Mucuge trip maker to plot your vacation.

    Historic cemetery of unusual appearance and which interestingly until today serves the residents of the city.

    In order to learn more details is important to visit with a guide, so he will tell the story behind the construction of the cemetery. If you are alone, you can also enjoy watching the Byzantine architecture of the tombs. Quick ride and some pictures. Is next to the BR.

    Even for those who like adventure. Beside climbing has the cruzeirao and upstairs to see the whole city. Perfect

    A true work of art where the Gothic and Byzantine Style mix nature. There are few examples of this in the world, one located in Italy, one in Igatu and another Mucugê these last two located in the Chapada Diamantina-Bahia-Brazil

    One of the first, perhaps only, Byzantine cemetery of Brazil. With great honor my dear grandfather Hector Mendes Chamusca was buried here.

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