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.

But worth the decoration of its cypress trees with archaeological designs such as the incas, Maya etc. Nice to take pictures. At night it says that it has LED lights but we don't lol

Recommended place to visit.
Very interesting a must see if you are in the area
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.
Excellent site. Cultural heritage of Ecuador. Do not put 5 stars because I miss a guide which will explain and will as they managed everything.
Excellent. the figures found in the place are really beautiful and place to learn a bit of the culture
an excellent place... which through the pines and its forms represent their cultures pre-Hispanic... at the entrance to sell samples in pastures pottery manufactured by artisans of the place
