Cemiterio Bizantino, Mucuge

4.0
#19 of 78 in Historic Sites in State of Bahia
Cemetery Tourist Spot
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.

  • 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.
