El Bosque Tallado, El Bolson

(3.8/5 based on 320+ reviews on the web)
See magical works of art at El Bosque Tallado, an outdoor sculpture gallery set in the wilderness. After forest fires devastated the area in the 1980s, a group of artists from across the nation came together to create sculptures using trunks from what remained of the trees. With fairies, spirits, and woodland creatures all charmingly depicted in the wood, the 50 or so sculptures nicely represent the relationship between art and nature. The site is around an hour's walk from the parking lot, so bring suitable footwear.

  • Hire the excursion in an agency and me took until the place and I waited to make the ascent. It is demanding but worthwhile. Personally not me like much the sculptures and not understand much about the topic. But this place is different... and the framework landscape is amazing!

  • Carved forest is a beautiful place to visit once we have already made other trips. Really worth, but it should be noted something important: climb the Piltri by car is complicated. The road has many stone, so is that you should drive with caution. You must leave the car in the parking lot and walk along a path very well maintained and signposted. In summer, it is recommended to do so early in the morning, until the temperature rises. The sculptures are excellent. There is that take is the time to explore and observe carefully. I was on several occasions and always found new sculptures. Then you can climb up to the refuge, from where you have a wonderful view.

  • Beautiful landscape, adorned by several sculptures carved on wood. Although most of the road from route can be done by car, the last (relatively tiring) part is Yes or Yes walk. Internal signage of the route could be more guidance (given that the ride is not very linear), but does not make much difference because the sculptures are from a reasonable distance. The day we went (October 26, 2016) were missing some posters with the corresponding name of some sculptures, but most of the posters were in good condition.

  • To access road is gravel and is in very poor condition. You must leave the car 1 km before the carved forest. You must climb walking along a path of descent fairly insecure: it has no Rails and there are many stones. Do not recommend for children or elderly people because you have to do a little physical effort to get, and the road so narrow and high does not help.

  • Lot of magic in the place, beautiful views. A walk by a trail in bad state, steep, with areas of average difficulty but that is worth the penalty make and enjoy.
