Tulcán Municipal Cemetery

Topiary at cemetery. Little boy is taking a picture of Dan as he takes this picture.

A quick taxi ride into the Ecuadorian border town of
Tulcán  and their Municipal Cemetery might seem an odd tourist destination. We didn’t know anything about it but our taxi driver highly recommended it. The topiary work was begun in 1936 by Josè Maria Azael Franco and is truly amazing to see.

The crypts are interesting as well. Most had various artifacts related to the person’s life. Only their name and year of death are inscribed.
