Rows of skillfully crafted hedges bring bright green cypress trees to life at Cementerio Municipal de Tulcan. Here the art of topiary is not only practiced but mastered, with towering hedges carved into pillars, swirls, faces, arches, and animals. The cemetery first opened in 1932 to replace an old cemetery damaged in an earthquake. Among the magical green creatures are more than 12,400 graves, tombs, niches, and mausoleums; one section of the cemetery holds fallen soldiers from the 1941 Ecuadorian-Peruvian War.

I leave some photos so they fancied. Ahh well, and when they come out, close by is the Park and restaurants where you can eat. In addition there is much Commerce and things on the date in which I went, very economical.
You must visit it, it's free. Take a bus from the bus station, then walk for 10 mins and then you are there. Visit won't take you more than an hour. It's a must do like las lajas in Colombia.
Personal opinion it is the most beautiful cemetery in the world. Cypress shrubs pruned very peculiar forms and signage with famous quotes relating to the death of authorship of historical artists, beautify the gardens of this spectacular cemetery.
Seem strange to many, but the cemetery of Tulcán is a tourist attractive beautiful. Shrubs formations are quite creative and meaningful. If you visit Tulcan, it is a must that you can not stop going. Highly recommended!
It is a beautiful place with figures made in pine trees and beautiful gardens
Sensational, fairly trade, Tulcán friendly people, trade in pesos or dollars, beautiful sculptures in pine!
