39 Cemetery of San Diego in Quito, Ecuador

The suggestion of visiting a graveyard during your vacation might seem preposterous. Yet Latin America has several famous necropoleis such as La Recoleta in Buenos Aires. The Cemetery of San Diego ranks among the best. Since it was established in 1872, it has become the final resting place of Quito’s famous residents including five former presidents of Ecuador. The elaborate mausoleums display an array of architectural styles created by the city’s best architects and sculptors.
