Las Pozas de Edward James

August 28, 2017  •  Leave a Comment

Las Pozas is Spanish for “The Pools” and is one of the most interesting places I have been in Mexico. They sit at more than 2,000 feet above sea level in a subtropical rainforest in the mountains of Mexico near the village of Xilitla San Luis Potosi.

This is a fantasy garden with large surreal concrete structures built between 1949 and 1984 by the Edward James a British poet known for his collection of surrealist art. Here’s a link to an interesting Edward James documentary on YouTube.

The village of Xilitla is a seven-hour drive north of Mexico City. We traveled through the state of Queretaro and through the Sierra Gorda. Driving conditions were good however you have to have a big sense of adventure driving through a two lane road filled with a multitude of curves. The scenery, however, was spectacular.
