Trip Planner: South America / Ecuador / Carchi Province / Tulcan / Historic Sites / Cementerio Municipal de Tulcan
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.
