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.

  • Very picturesque and different place. The view during the day stands out so much in the middle of the mountain. But at night the view is splendid.

  • Is an attraction of the city, a landmark and a point of reference. Has a side trail that leads to a lookout point in the city. It is worth climbing.

  • The night seems a Nativity scene illuminated with the tombstones embedded in the stones of the great Hill, entitled to the brave a night trail to the top of the mountain. Postcard of Mucugê.

  • 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.
