El Bosque Tallado, El Bolson

3.7
#2 of 7 in Museums in Province of Rio Negro
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. Make El Bosque Tallado part of your personalized El Bolson itinerary using our El Bolson holiday site .

  • Carved forest is a place that you can not miss if you go to El Bolsón. From the parking lot up to the entrance to the place where the sculptures must walk about 1800 meters almost all uphill, making it a bit demanding. The only thing regrettable is the driveway that is really impassable and badly maintained. They should reverse that topic because it actually discourages the visit.
