Exploring Espacio Escultórico de la UNAM

Fancy a temporary escape from the beautiful chaos of Mexico City? Explore Espacio Escultórico de la Universidad Nacional Autónoma de México (UNAM), a gargantuan sculpture space and ecological reserve just 30 minutes south of the capital city. On a clear day you can spot volcanic mountains in the distance whilst you relax, reflect and reconnect alongside university students.
