Las Pozas( World Monuments Fund )
Las Pozas, which means "the pools" in Spanish, is a collection of surrealist structures created by English aristocrat Edward James. Born into wealth, James left his English mansion to create a fantasyland amid central Mexico's jungle. Besides its multitude of pools, Las Pozas' 20 acres include a staircase to nowhere and buildings with names such as "House With Three Stories That Might Be Five" and "House With a Roof Like a Whale."
