Spectacular Places to Drive around: Borrego Springs Serpent Sculptures.

Updated: Apr 4, 2023

The sculptures are all the work of one man, Ricardo Breceda. The craziest thing is they almost didn't exist. At one point in his life, Ricardo was a hard worker in the Durango, Mexico on a construction site.

The sculptures can be found north and south of Borrego Springs along Borrego Springs Road. Most of the artworks are located close to the roadside, but a few you have to drive off the main road on a dirt track to reach.

Enjoy a variety of amazing Sculptures like the Dragon Sculpture that is 15 ft tall and 350 feet long.

Borrego Springs is home to over 130 metal sculptures in the desert around Galleta Meadows Estates. They are a public art display worth a detour to Borrego Springs. You do not want to miss the opportunity to see art in the desert on your Anza Borrego Desert State Park or Joshua Tree National Park trip.

After your trip enjoy a variety of local shops in Borrego Springs and local restaurants.
