Tulcán is a province located in the north of Ecuador and it is bordering on Colombia. As a point of reference to reach this city is the capital of Ecuador – Quito, with a distance of 4 hours by bus and a value of $ 6.30, I arrived in Tulcán where I was preparing to start this new adventure.
I arrived at the Lumar hotel with a value of $ 23 per night including taxes + breakfast, a hotel located in the center of Tulcán, this is a great place to sleep and rest, I recommend it.
After I left my things at the hotel I got on a taxi that took me to the Tulcán Cemetery, you only have to pay$ 1.25.
The Tulcán cemetery is a beautiful place, this is a real work of art that started to be built in 1936 with his first work called “Camino al Cielo” located on the left front of the cemetery. According to the position of the gardens, it has been called “Altar de Dios ”And on its back, we have the“ Parque de Los Recuerdos ”created in 1987. The Tulcán Cemetery was declared a Cultural Heritage of Ecuador in 1984.
These green sculptures are made from a bush called Cypress, they have different styles such as Greek, Egyptian, Inca, Arabic, animals, and other shapes. We find arches, Gothic columns, among many more. These bushes are pruned every 4 months and the bushes need to have 10 years old to start to begin the new shapes. to create a green sculpture from 10 years of age they begin to give the artistic form.
My recommendations before visiting this beautiful place are that we must wear comfortable shoes, a coat, the temperature of Tulcan is approximately 10 o C, hat, glasses, a camera or your cell phone. The cemetery is open from 7 in the morning until 8 at night.
Delighted to return to this beautiful cemetery in Tulcán, I prepared to return to the hotel to rest, tomorrow I’m going to record in Colombia. Tulcán and its beautiful cemetery is a place that you must visit once in your life, this cemetery will be one of my favorite places in Ecuador. you can’t forget to visit this extraordinary place if you visit the province of Carchi.
