Cemiterio Bizantino, Mucuge

(3.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 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.

  • Cemetery that sits right in front of the city with 10 minutes of Estrada to meet. Unfortunately there is no information on the site and no people to explain, but my guide said it was a Colonel too Rico who hired a Turk to do this cemetery because he wanted to be buried in a different way. Have a region that has several pieces of glass, because a miner lost a diamond and went crazy. Was on the street picking up all the broken glass and put on this site that according to him was the Sun was shining when remembering the diamond I had lost. The visit can be day or night.

  • Interesting place, too bad there was no one to explain, but I can see that it is still current, because recently people are buried at the site
