Cementerio Municipal de Tulcan, 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.

  • Is that it sounds weird without having someone in a cemetery buried, one make a visit, but when in the cemetery, there is something special, because it is. The cemetery features cypress trees which have been pruned giving rise to pre-Columbian forms and daily figures, more than a cemetery looks like a park

  • 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.
  • It is a beautiful place! A very different way of thinking in eternal rest and in the memory of loved ones!
