Cemiterio Bizantino, Mucuge
(3.2/5 based on 340+ 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.

  • only those who visit the site understands what you mean because of the name given to the site. Differentiated architecture. Worth also follow the trail that follows for the cruise where you can see excellent landscapes, including the city of Mucugê.

  • Being in the tourist should not Mucugê, stop visiting this attraction. It is easy to reach, on the road, but close to the city centre. Even though a cemetery is not morbid and, for being all white, not fear or as a child.

  • Cultural tour and curious. Cemittério located at the foot of a mountain range with tombs that mimic the facades of churches, with adornments of pinnacles, volutes and arcs.
