This is one of the top ten things to visit in Guayaquil

It lies around a hill on the northern side Guayaquil, Ecuador which is topped by a huge statue of Christ. This is the National Cemetery, more picturesquely known as El Ciudad Blanca, "The White City" and it has gardens of elaborate marble sculptures and mausoleums, an imposing 20th century necropolis in ancient Greco-Roman style, and the new Religious Art Museum of Nahim Isaias Barquet in addition to hundreds of less grandiose graves of ordinary people in stacked mausoleums
