El Bosque Tallado, El Bolson

3.7
#2 of 8 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 .

  • From the top you can see virtually the entire Valley and is very beautiful with the snow capped mountains. The forest itself with carvings could much improve the appearance to the tourist sculptures are already very damaged by the passage of time. It could exploit much more keeping tourism carvings, arranging the way to go by car since it is with many holes and improving the safety of the visitors that leave the car down.

  • It is an interesting walk. access by car, remis or excursion to the platform of the Hill. From there 800 walk uphill to access the carved forest. This route is not recommended for people with mobility difficulties. upon arrival the views are beautiful and there is a shelter if you want to drink or eat something. I recommend it
