El Bosque Tallado, El Bolson

Forest Art Gallery
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.

  • We had a rental car and drove up to the platform to start the hike. I'd highly recommend driving or catching a ride up that far...the walk prior up the gravel road doesn't look very exciting. We passe...  more »
