    Bonfim Cemetery

    Rua Bonfim, 1120
    Belo Horizonte, 31210-150
    +55 31 3277 6101

    Bonfim Cemetery dates from 1897 and is slightly older than Belo Horizonte itself. It attracts people from all over due to its fine examples of graveyard art and tombs of important political figures such as Raul Soares, Olegario Maciel and the family mausoleum of current Brazilian president Dilma Rousseff. Some religious pilgrims also visit the cemetery in search of miracles from Father Eustaquio, Sister Benigna and Marlene, a little girl who had a tragic death in the 1950s and is considered a local saint. The elaborate sculptures that can be found around the cemetery represent various styles from the 19th and 20th century. Call or email for information on guided visits.
