El Bosque Tallado, El Bolson

3.7
#2 of 18 in Things to do in El Bolson
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 .

    It is impressive to see the various works of art created by artists from different parts of the world, incredible as failed to improve this place after the fire. At times the ascent is quite steep so it could be slippery when there is much snow/ice. In these cases I recommend seizing any branch/stick to hold better.

    A cute plan for an afternoon of hiking in the region of El Bolsón or surrounding area. Accessible by car to a parking lot located minutes from the carved forest and from there walk a short way with slope that is very well signposted. From the carved woods, in addition to observing the many sculptures that are very beautiful and creative, is also beautiful views of the city. It is good to go after lunch and stay until sunset, to see the sunset in a few seats that are near the parking lot from where there is a great view. For a plan short few hours I recommend to go by car to the parking lot. Climbing on foot from the base of the cerro Piltriquitrón they are many hours, it's a full day to raise and lower.

    It is advisable to take a hike because they provide them necessary climbing equipment. It is sublime! It provides a recreation for the soul. You can see beautiful sculptures and a panoramic view of the area from Piltri Hill!
