The city of Mitsudzhe lying in 11 km. to the South from Moroni, is the good place, for acquisition of the unique local hand-made articles which are cut out with considerable art from different breeds of a tree.

By the way, actually there is a lot of tombstones in Mitsudzhe – local cemeteries are extensive and beautiful, but for this purpose there are serious reasons. Mitsudzhe’s inhabitants believe that they are protected from genies by spirit of the Saint who has been buried in the nearby village of Ikoni. The legend says that the Saint promised protection and protection that village where there will be his grave. Mitsudzhe’s inhabitants have stolen his body from Ikoni and have buried him in the city and that nobody could steal relics of the Saint at them, they have constructed a set of false, absolutely identical graves to confuse also genies and potential thieves.
