Inspirock Rating:
3.2/5 based on 320+ 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.

  • Located at the foot of a mountain, near the access road to the cemetery is a construction Mucugê that anyone passing by must meet, as it is the only one in this style in Brazil. Buildings mimic churches and temples and are kept painted white. At night, lights color blue cemetery.

  • Worth visiting. Compare the cemetery to an elaborate necklace. In its construction and in the construction of Mausoleums nothing copied that influence the Byzantine format. The mother of originality was the finding of a single place of access to everyone in town. The construction was made in a stone hillside.
