Learn about Blumenau’s beginnings in this group of houses that were occupied by the city’s founder, Herman Bruno Otto Blumenau, in the 1850s. His daughter’s cat cemetery – where Pepito, Mirko, Bum, Putzi, Schnurr and other beloved feline companions lie interred – is a nice spot of contemplation in the rambling backyard garden.
