What do you need to know for your visit to the Edward James Sculpture Garden?

SCULPTURE GARDEN

The Edward James Sculpture Garden, Las Pozas was created by Edward Frank Willis James, an eccentric British poet, artist and patron of the surrealist movement. James created a fusion between the organic and the artificial, between the jungle and the concrete, which merges the two worlds into one.

Its history begins in 1947 with James’s desire to create his own Garden of Eden, in 1962 after a frost that killed the thousands of orchids that James had planted, the construction of the cement structures and buildings begins and stops at 1984 with the death of James and it was not until 1991 that the garden opened to the public to be visited.

The total area of ​​the Garden is 37 hectares dedicated to ecological conservation, of these 9 hectares make up the sculpture garden, where you can admire more than 28 structures and sculptures. In 2007 the Fundación Pedro y Elena Hernández, A.C, acquired Las Pozas with the purpose of preserving the sculptures and conserving the ecosystem.
