Las Pozas – Xilitla, Mexico

laspozas5

What is it Built by the surrealist and artist Edward James Las Pozas (the pools) is a surrealist garden in the subtropical rain forest in the mountain of mexico.
Main attractions The place includes 80 acres of natural waterfalls and pools interlaced with towering surrealist sculptures. The place includes many trails composed of steps, ramps, bridges and narrow, winding walkways that traverse the valley walls.
Psychedelic Merit Psychedelic pioneer Aldous Huxley actually played a crucial role in directing James’ attention to Mexico. James spent 5 million dollars to built Las Pozas, financing it by selling his vast surrealist art collection. He called it his “surrealist xanadu.” It’s a psychedelic castle built in surrealist times, and well worth a psychonaut’s attention.
